A few months ago, I received an invite from Klout and American Express to attend an exclusive Klout Up here in New York City! The reason behind the Klout Up? To share how we can all spread the word about Small Business Saturday on November 26th, a day dedicated to helping small businesses and local economies on the busiest shopping weekend of the year.
Did you know that for every $100 spent at a local small business, $68 returns to the community? I love the idea of shopping at a local small business. Many small business have unique items you won't find at larger mass retailers. Some small business owners also offer custom personalized service. Small business owners are members of our communities who enjoy having a real connection with you. Check out this video of small business owners sharing how they're promoting their business to connect with you
During this busy holiday shopping season finding great gift ideas at local small business is super easy.

Please Note: I received a gift bag after the event and a Klout perk $25 Amex card to use on Small Business Saturday. I received both Klout perks because of my Klout influence. No other compensation was received. Neither Klout or American Express required me to blog about the perks. Views expressed are always 100% my own.
