SMALL ACTIONS GREATER GOOD
A Movement for Small Business Owners with Big Hearts
Do Good. Benefit Your Business. Inspire Others.
Through EFFECTIVE Small Business Social Responsibility
As a Small Business Owner do you…
Have a strong personal desire or passion to contribute more to the world around you that you just can't seem to fulfill?
Want to leave a better world behind you for your children and grandchildren but you are so busy that you don't have much time outside of work and your family?
Want to be a great role model for your family, friends, employees, customers or community to inspire the actions of others?
Recognize that consumers and employees are starting to EXPECT Social Responsibility and know that you need to step up?
But you hesitate because it doesn’t feel like your actions will make enough of a difference or you have NO idea how to start?
Or, you already do a lot and want to do more but aren’t sure how to add effort without becoming overwhelmed or you aren’t seeing business benefits from your actions??
"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." ~Mother Teresa
Sometimes it’s easy to forget that we are part of a MUCH bigger group…
In 2018 in the US alone, there were 30.2 million small businesses (99.9% of the total number of businesses).
They employ 58.9 million people (47% of the private workforce).
Just imagine all the good that could be done if we, as Small Business Owners, started taking more actions AND encouraging others?
"Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into the water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects." ~Dalai Lama

Who Founded Small Actions Greater Good?
The movement was started by Tanya Quinn. She’s a Strategic Coach, Chief Operations Officer, and Small Business Social Responsibility Advocate.
To encourage Small Business Owners who want to make more of a difference in the world while still running a successful business, she created Small Actions Greater Good to increase awareness of Small Business Social Responsibility, share useful resources and inspirational stories, and host a community of like-minded individuals.
Tanya believes that the power to make a difference in our world isn’t only for large corporations. Small Business Owners CAN make simple, but very effective changes, that not only contribute to their business and the world around them, but when combined with the efforts of other like-minded Small Business Owners, can truly contribute to a greater good.
"You can start changing our world for the better daily, no matter how small the action." ~Nelson Mandela
