Where Do You Get Business Support?

We’ve all seen an Apple Keynote, Tesla update, or some other mass communication event from a large tech company. As outsiders, we get a small glimpse into the massive scale of these organizations. You don’t have to look much farther than the new Apple campus to be in awe of the sheer size of some of these companies. By employing thousands of men, women, (and robots) they seem to move mountains when it comes to business objectives and sales. When it comes to business support, they have their bases covered.

“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people” – Steve Jobs

As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you know it is important to have a strong team around you. You may look around your home office or coworking space and feel what all small business owners feel from time to time; lonely. It’s easy to see a massive organization in motion and feel like you are missing something. Maybe you’ve left a corporate job to go out on your own and you find yourself missing the team vibes. It’s completely normal.

You’re Number 1!

Being a team of 1 has some serious advantages and doesn’t mean accomplishing HUGE things is out of reach.

Think about it. No lengthy approval processes, quick turnaround on projects, and the ability to be agile are just some of the many advantages of being a solo operation. Being a team or 1, or even of a few people if you do have a small team, means you can move quickly, adapt, and to put it bluntly, get $%&* done.

 

Support Comes in Many Forms

While the support and friendship of colleagues is amazing, it isn’t the only way to get the boost you need as a business owner. If you’re a one-person show, it may come from friends, family, and other business owners. No matter where it’s coming from, support is the key.

Look to other small business owners in your community. Find someone you can connect with, talk business, share ideas, and troubleshoot issues. Turning to another business owner means they will likely share some of your same pain points and understand what you are dealing with. While family and friends can be supportive, sometimes another business owner can offer a unique perspective and help you get through an issue.
