11 Black Friday Deals for Entrepreneurs

As a follower of the Church of Stop Shopping, I’ve observed “Buy Nothing Day” on Black Friday for the last 10 years. With one exception:

Supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses while buying digital products with a small (or invisible) consumer footprint. 

Black Friday is known as an opportunity to amass a new collection of beeping, flashing, sparkling piles of plastic you’ll be selling on Facebook Marketplace in just a few years time. There are “Gifts for Him” and “Gifts for Her” (please, gawwwd, no more baskets of scented lotions for the love of Christmas).

But, what about gifts for your business?

  • They’re tax-deductible
  • They set you up to make more money instead of throwing it away
  • They support small businesses and families, not big box stores

Gifts for your business are the gifts that keeps on giving, baby! And I’ve got something for everyone. (And zero baskets of smelly soaps!)
