Washington, D.C. - Today and every day, Small Business Majority celebrates entrepreneurs across the country. This year, we are proud to bring back our Holiday Gift Guide, which features over 250 small businesses!

The holidays have always brought a unique sense of uncertainty for true small business owners. This season, America's job creators are navigating a possible shutdown after the new year and ongoing access to capital challenges. Despite these obstacles, smaller firms are persevering. Please help to spotlight these innovators ahead of “Small Business Saturday” and the upcoming holiday season.

  • Tiffany Heard is the owner of Hues of Africa in Hawthorne, California. This woman-owned, Black-owned small business specializes in creating educational coloring and activity books to engage and educate about global travel to Africa and Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
