Make Friendships More Golden than Tinsel

Make it a priority to meet, and take interest in other local small business owners, even if they are not in your industry or would never become a customer of yours. These friendships will be sources of support and encouragement, and provide valuable insight into the way other business owners handle the same issues you may be facing. Walk the block, drop in, and introduce yourself as a fellow business owner. Offer to meet for coffee just to get to know each other (and not ‘Can I pick your brain?’). Some people will respond, some won’t, but the ones who do may end up becoming friends and advisors for life!

It’s always so important to meet other local businesses, and now is the perfect time to drop in and see them! It’s the end of the year, see if you can forge some new relationships for 2017! And, to keep track of who you go to see, use our free demo template to organize them all in one place!
