SBS Featured Friday meetings are hosted by Phillip Saxton. Mr. Saxton says, “Business owners need an organization that is dedicated to their success. It is absolutely necessary for business owners to grow, be encouraged and interact with fellow business owners to discuss ideas and challenges of day to day operations.”
SBS Featured Friday is a small business networking group that meets each Friday at 8am. We started our meetings in Dacula, GA and after several years, moved to The 1818 Club in Duluth Georgia. Because of the current COVID-19 crisis, we started having Zoom meetings. Later in 2021, along with our Zoom meetings, we will have in person gatherings.
Over the years, hundreds of business owners have benefited from attending our weekly one hour meetings. Our meetings are free. To receive an invite to attend, complete the ‘contact us’ form and include your email address.

SBS FF Value
The value of Small Business Samaritans Featured Friday is to provide a mental space & platform for business owners to come together, discuss business issues, fellowship, network and to take on the responsibility to pray and encourage our fellow business associates. In each of our meetings, we think hard about how each business person can be enhanced & helped. We encourage participants to join in on our weekly mission to enhance the lives of others and dedicate ourselves to their business success.

SBS FF 2021 Theme: ‘Dare to be different and do something great! Something that will change the world for the better.’
The meetings are denominationally inclusive and politically neutral and geared to business people sharing their faith in Jesus Christ and how that works in the marketplace. You do not have to be a Christian to attend, we just want people to know that we use Christian principles in business discussions. We believe that all business entrepreneurs are called by God to provide goods and services to our community. Businesses are to provide economic support and jobs for people living in the community. You do not have to be a Christian or even believe in God to start and operate a business. God uses all of us in the accomplishment of his purposes.
Many of our meetings feature a personal testimony. Join business owners and managers for our expanded teaching & fellowship events.
We expect to continue to have Zoom meetings well into 2021 because of the convenience and protection from COVID. We will plan on having in person fellowships and meetings in 2021. These in-person meetings will be announced.
Dear God, we thank you for the power you have given us to obtain wealth. Help us to recognize the power and ability we have to impact in a positive way the community in which we live and the marketplace in which we operate. We pray for great wealth generation to be used to help others and to be a part of the prosperity engine you have set in place. We also pray for a clean heart, oh Lord, to operate out of concern for others and not on the basis of greed. Amen.
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” – Vince Lombardi
2021 is a year of accomplishment. Our ‘Samaritans of Greatness’ will share how they will change the world for the better.
It’s been heard before that Small Business owners must multi task, be efficient, give direction, delegate, motivate and amongst this, build relationships with your customers. But make no mistake about it, building a strong relationship with your bank is also very important. This is something that unfortunately too few business owners give enough attention to: your relationship with your banker.
This discussion will cover points & suggestions on the important need to develop better relationships with your bank.
