As we reflect on 2020, who would have imagined what this year would bring. Instead of focusing on the crazy, why not celebrate the creativity, resourcefulness, and resilience of Small Business. We all quickly understood the meaning of PPP and remote working. Although Covid forced companies to close, a staggering number of new businesses are opening every week. Applications to form new businesses surged 77% in the quarter, according to Census Bureau data.
Here at Snowball, we are very focused on our key partner, the U.S. Post Office. Direct Mail is a huge part of our business. Thank you for every mail-in ballot! The system worked and prevailed. It is because of you, change was made and your voice was heard. As Olivia Waxman states from Time Magazine, “More Americans voted in 2020—and voted by mail—than in any other election in U.S. history.”
Now we can start to plan the future-forward. Let’s come together and work with our key partners and make change happen. Let’s advocate for diversity, set ESG goals, and add a layer of transparency in every facet of our business. Let’s support businesses that value the same and help make 2021 rebound.
Lastly, we wouldn’t be successful if it weren’t for all of you supporting our dream. This holiday season, things look a bit different. Some families will have to restrict the usual get togethers due to the pandemic. However, we can still pause and remember all of the blessings bestowed on us and the things for which we are grateful.
