"The holidays naturally evoke emotion and at Sage, we wanted to create a special, heartfelt ad that shows our appreciation of the entrepreneurs who make our holidays better," said Van Diamandakis, executive brand vice-president at Sage. "This festive season is a time of celebration, especially for the people, values, and traditions that matter to us. But so often, hard-working small business owners have to sacrifice time with family and friends to stay open. We want to take the opportunity to shine a light on the business builders who work tirelessly to make other people's holidays so special that they miss out on their own."
