One of our members blogged several days ago about “make a referral week.” I was intrigued so I clicked on the link, signed up and have been receiving their e-mail updates. Well this morning I took it a bit more seriously and actually did a referral. There’s a woman in my community who is an absolute gem. She gives and gives and never asks for anything in return. In fact I’m having lunch with her today and I can’t wait to see her smiling face.

She’s a hard working farmer. She grows and sells protea flowers. I’ve shared her link here before. But this morning she was really on my mind; her kindness and generousity, her humility and unselfish acts. I wanted to do something for her. I thought about surprising her and paying for lunch before she had a chance to pay the bill. I may still do that.

But when I received my reminder from “make a referral week” this morning I saw the opportunity to post her link and information on their site and give her a gift she would not think of giving herself, Free Advertising. I posted her link and it made my heart glad. I don’t know if she’ll get any business out of it, but the effort alone felt good. So I began thinking of other links I wanted to share. I e-mailed the owner of the site and asked him if I could do more than one. He said I could do one every day if I want.

So the next link I’m going to share is the fab40 link.

If you know someone in your community or a small business owner who you do business with, it only takes a minute to share their link on that site. Who knows, maybe we can jump start this economy one small business at a time. Wouldn’t that be something?

So, here’s the link.
