LAKE CHARLES, La. - Dec. 12, 2014 - PRLog -- In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day happens every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and encourages people to shop at the small businesses that help write the story of America.

In keeping with this national day of recognizing small businesses, Michele Scism of Lake Charles, LA, continues her leaving a legacy theme, by hosting a video competition where #smallbusiness owners are encouraged to submit a video about a marketing campaign or idea that helps to grow their business.
