As a great believer in the power of small business I can’t stress enough the importance of engagement, conversation and collaboration in the small business world; as the old saying goes “two heads are better than one” and even more than that is a bonus!
Big businesses have many employees, often a board of directors and shareholders who they can take advice, direction and input from. In a small business, however, this is not necessarily the case and this can often be to the detriment of the business. Collaboration is vital to moving forward, and that is why I believe it is vital for small businesses to talk to each other.
Over the next few weeks I will be introducing some exciting new projects I am working on to enable small businesses to collaborate, take advice and talk to each other. I encourage you and your business to get on board and become involved in each of these projects, helping you business to grow and thrive.
Success for small businesses must come from working together – rather than working as individual entities small businesses must collaborate. When working as a freelancer, home business or small business it can be hard to generate this level of collaboration and conversation; especially when your business takes up a lot of time leaving little time to network.
When working day in day out on a small business it can often be hard to see different ways to take your business forward. Speaking to other business owners, or reading blogs detailing the experiences of successful business people, can be a great way to further your business and increase the productivity of your small business.
I will be speaking here over the coming weeks about ways that your small business can engage in conversation and collaboration both with other small business owners as well as successful business people. I really hope you’ll join me!
