You may be a maverick if you chose the last one. But how do you know for sure?
Every business owner contains within him or herself courage and a spark of independence; working long hours without the certainty of a corporate paycheck, legal concerns, employee wages, and taxes are enough to make any sane person turn and run away. With that said, not all business owners aspire to be maverick business owners.
At Shop Local we’ve identified three types of small business owners.
We’ve identified some local Mavericks here in the South Bay. Their businesses come in all shapes and sizes. And because we believe in rewarding courage, creativity, discipline, and sound business acumen, we’ve created the South Bay Business Mavericks Gala & Grant Awards.
If you’ve just discovered that you are a maverick or perhaps you know of one, then you’re in the right place! Join us as we celebrate local and independent small business mavericks here in the South Bay at our annual Gala.
We hand-select a dynamic group of prominent local business leaders and influencers to be part of our panel. Panelists are asked to be forthcoming and share their stories of courage, creativity, and risk-taking that goes along with running a business and growing a brand to inspire attendees.
