How to Support a Friend's New Small Business: Host a Business Shower!

A meme has quickly been passed around on Facebook that says instead of throwing a baby shower, support small business by hosting a business shower. When a friend starts a new business, help them celebrate and bring resources to help! In today’s growing gig economy and entrepreneur climate, this is a wonderful idea! Here are a few tips if you want to host a business shower:

  • Don’t ask your friend to take time away from their to launch date in order to clean. Hire a cleaning service for their home, or even better, find a public location and post signs: “Welcome to Our New Business Party!” Give your friend a leg up on advertising and get people talking!
  • If the business is online only, create a public Facebook event so that you and your friends can share the good news about a soon-to-be-born business! Everyone likes to celebrate good news and you’ll help drive anticipation for launch day.
  • Shower gifts can be office supplies, colorful pens, notecards, envelopes or quality printer paper.
  • Don't forget the entrepreneur! Massage gift certificates, healthy snack foods and an essential oil diffuser with relaxing scents will help the new business owner unwind after a hectic launch.
