We all need a bit of encouragement

When you’ve been working hard at something for a while, that you are passionate about, you can get a bit lost in it it all.

There are some words that just make it all make sense and that, as cofounders, we need to hear.

Little Black Book

Welcome to the 'Little black book of independent business'

from The HOW People 

**An evolving list of makers, creatives and businesses from Wales and all over the UK**

This Christmas, try and think about whether you can buy and support an independent business in person, or online, run by an individual or family who will do a fist pump or a happy dance when your order drops into their inbox. It might take a few more days to arrive but they'll be doing a #HOWhappydance and it will make a real difference. 

Shop Local. Shop Independent. Shop Small.
