TIRED OF TODAY
Many people, including small business owners and their customers, are sick and tired of “today”, and are demanding a much different tomorrow. Individually, as small business owners, each of us is hoping for a better tomorrow but concentrate our time and energy on the difficulties of today.
Small business survival requires a “today focus” mentality, leaving virtually no time to look ahead at future market demands. That means we are behind now and will continue to play catch up.
Accepting the fact that belonging matters is the first step to a solution. Every small business owner is hoping (but not believing that it is achievable), for a community that will support them, protect them, teach them, help them achieve their full potential, allow for credible business relationships, and to be there for them whenever the need arises.
For a little more detail, a small business community has to put the needs of its individual customers at the center of their business model and integrate social and environmental responsibility when serving them. It also requires a genuine commitment to help the other small business members of the community achieve their goals.
So what is the challenge? If you read the last three blogs together you will see the direction that I want to go. Your challenge is to help grow this “IDEAL” by sharing this vision with other small business owners and asking them to help build this new community. This community is not a networking community but a Giveworking community. It is not restricted by profession but by the desire to bring kindness and positivity back to our nation.
There is a lot more detail to this re-launch. Please introduce me to anyone that wants to grow their business and join the Giveworking mentality.
