SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

Over this weekend, North America has gone shopping crazy, all in the lead-up to Christmas! First, there was Black Friday, the day after the American Thanksgiving, a day of super specials. Over the past few years, it has started to be celebrated here in Canada, Black Friday that is. That’s because there was a mass exodus to the States that day which meant a lot of money leaving Canada…no longer.

Then Saturday saw SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY…I liked the fact that President Obama celebrated that day going to a small book store with his two kids.

That sure does send out the message that small business is important in driving an economy. Charity, my wife and I operate a small business. I just don’t know if small business is valued in Ghana in the scheme of things. There is enough of it, petty trading is big time in Ghana. But no celebration….

Yes, African is open for business, only is it open for SMALL BUSINESS?

What there isn’t a lot of in Ghana is books, except of the religious variety, so like President Obama, I too hit the bookstore over the shopping weekend!
