I believe wholeheartedly that a small business or entrepreneur needs it’s community to survive.
You have to be involved in something. Anything. Big or small, popular or not…getting involved in your community is SO KEY.
Because you look good if you volunteer.
That’s part of it, let’s be real here. But it’s WAY more than that.
The situations volunteering in your community will put you in can teach you a million lessons for your business IF you are paying attention.
So pay attention…
What are some struggles? Can you help? Can you alleviate those struggles in some small way?
What is your community jacked up about? What’s fun and makes them feel a part of something?
What messages are groups in your community trying to share? Can you get behind that cause? Lend your time or talent to back it?
Are you a home based business and are hermitting up? Haven’t washed your hair in a week because you don’t REALLY need to see anyone to do your job?
Here’s the straight truth…
You are probably losing touch with your community and your work (and personal hygiene!) is going to suffer.
Get out there. Get involved. Meet all the people. Embrace the awkward. Click To TweetI guarantee your business will benefit. People hire people. And they can only hire people they know are there.
So get there.
