As a small business owner, I know how important and difficult it can be to compete with the big corporations of the world. That’s why when it came to Christmas last year, I made the decision to do all of my festive shopping with as much small business as possible. And you know what, it was great fun finding all of these incredible small businesses across Scotland. I loved that I was able to find gifts for my loved ones that were unique and not something you could just pick up off a shelf in a supermarket. Knowing that these gifts were also helping out small businesses and growing local economies felt good too. But it’s still a continuous struggle for small businesses to compete against the huge international corporations. So I’ve decided to start this new blog series titled ‘Scottish Spotlight’ – a series of blogs where I interview small Scottish business owners. First up in the ‘Scottish Spotlight’ series is ‘Green Loch Chocolates’, a chocolatier based in Fife.
