It never hurts to have a supportive network around you.
Whether you are just branching out or gearing up for your umpteenth year in business, it never hurts to have a supportive network around you. Owning a business can not only be stressful but lonely. Not every family member or friend will understand or emphasize with your entrepreneurial journey.
The key is to surround yourself with like-minded individuals who can offer advice, share opportunities and listen to your big ideas. Go beyond your typical inner circle and broaden your network of support.
Small Business Support
When you consider how many small businesses surround you in your everyday lives, it is impressive to think about the amount of time, commitment and labor these hard working individuals contribute to make their businesses both come to life and stay alive. Yet, many Americans frequent chain stores without considering their local merchant or other small business options.
Whether it’s filling a prescription at a local pharmacy vs. Walgreens or picking up eggs and milk at a local corner store vs. your nearest Walmart, small businesses are too often overlooked for all the wrong reasons. Customers assume that pricing will automatically be higher at a small business vs. a corporate owned store, as well as they dismiss the perks that many small businesses offer such as customer care, inventory assortment and community support.
However, did you know that many of these misconceptions about small businesses are just that… misconceptions?
Today’s entrepreneurs enjoy the benefits of connectivity and remote working but it can be a lonely calling.
In technological terms, there has never been a better time to be a small business owner: people can always get hold of you and you can work wherever you need to. Logistically it may not be all that great, though – remote working can be isolating and sometimes when you need a meeting space the local coffee shop just won’t cut it.
