“You don’t build a business, you build people, then people build the business.”.
We are both from families where entrepreneurship is what has fed generations before us. We grew up watching our parents work hard, and learnt the value of hard work and the sacrifices it takes to make a living, especially since Camilla now runs her own small business. Today the measures taken in Switzerland will impact so many businesses including restaurants, bars, tourism agencies, cultural sites etc, … and we thought that we might offer our support to the people behind their small businesses.
We don’t have the advertising reach of huge media or big IG account but we’d love to help you if we can. We have an amazing community around this blog and perhaps we can create something good in this really difficult period of our lives. It’s important to remain positive and focus on the end of the tunnel.
We have decided to create this special page on our blog for you to discover all these wonderful small businesses and we will also advertise some of them in stories on Instagram.
It's free for any small business.
As French and English natives, we also want to offer this page to small businesses located in France and England and maybe you will discover some wonderful little businesses in time for your Christmas shopping and help to boost their visibility.
