We dedicate weeks and days to small businesses asking consumers to shop small. We reiterate the importance small business have on our economy and job growth. But when we think about the roles businesses play in our lives, do we ever consider how Important it is to buy and support businesses in and from our home country? We shop small, we shop local, and on a number of occasions, we’re ask to shop patriotically. As owners of these businesses, should we remind current and potential customers that we’re home-grown? Does it matter and to what degree? Are we possibly neglecting international business when we brand our products and services with patriotism? Should pride in our citizenry go hand in hand with our business?
