As much of the east coast recovers from a devastating storm, we at NFIB hope that you and your families are safe and sound. In the coming days, I know that the small-business community will be doing what you always do: lending a hand, staying strong and leading your communities through difficult times.
If your business was impacted, and it is time to navigate the insurance claims process, there is information on the NFIB website that we hope you will find helpful.
There are certain things that no one does better than small business – like innovation and job creation. But, most of all, your unique role in this country is one of leadership. You are the foundation of your communities, and we are reminded of that when disaster strikes.
Your leadership will also be critical between now and Tuesday’s election. No one is more aware than you of what’s at stake on Election Day. As you look forward to casting your vote, remember that you are not alone. Millions of other small-business owners will be joining you, making the voice of small business one that really counts in this election.
Make sure your neighbors, families and employees know how important it is to exercise their right to vote. Talk to them about the issues that impact your business. Your leadership matters, your vote matters, and I believe that Tuesday could be a big day for small business.
