7 Thanksgiving GIFs for small businesses

November 22, 2017

‘Tis the season for spending time with family and friends, eating lots of food, and giving thanks. Oh, and it’s also the busiest time of year for small business owners. NBD.

The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s can be one of the most stressful times of year. Between the holiday shopping rush, lots of vacation time, and racing to meet your annual revenue goals, there’s a lot on your plate besides turkey and stuffing. Despite all the highs and lows that come with being a small business owner, you have a lot to be thankful for this year!

Take a break from the holiday stress to enjoy some of these Thanksgiving turkey gifs and gear up for your next round of success during the holidays. Here are 7 gifs that illustrate what we’re truly thankful for this Thanksgiving!

1. You have the best boss in the world.

Yourself! Each and every day, you get to call the shots. And while that may be overwhelming sometimes, at least you never have to deal with the whims of someone like Michael Scott.

2. Revenue is up!

According to early analyst projections, “nearly three-quarters of entrepreneurs are optimistic their 2017 year-end revenue will surpass 2016 revenue.” Way to go, you!

3. You get to build something you love.


Yes, you have to hustle, and yes, some days can be quite the grind. But at the end of the day, you’re chasing your dream, and that makes it all worthwhile.

4. This was the year of free marketing.


Is this the year you finally figured out Facebook? High five! Did you double your foot traffic by putting a chalkboard sign up? Nice work! Free marketing opportunities are everywhere (and it’s not too late to try a few new ideas before the end of the year!).

5. Your customers are truly fantastic.


You love your best customers. These are the people who help you keep the lights on, refer you to new customers, and will always stay loyal. Your customers are your bread and butter (potatoes and gravy?), and that’s something special.

6. Small Business Saturday is right around the corner!


Black Friday without the riots? Sign us up.

7. Last but not least: your squad.


Your employees bring your business to life each and every day—they might even dress in a turkey suit if you ask them. While it can be hard to delegate—and sometimes your team might drive you crazy—you know your business would be nowhere without their help and dedication.

It’s easy to get so focused on your business that you forget to be thankful for what you’ve achieved. Take a moment before the holiday shopping seasons hits to appreciate everything you’ve built! Enjoy some turkey and stuffing with an extra helping of pie: you’ve earned it.
