In my opinion, one of the greatest things about owning your own business is your ability to collaborate with so many amazing people in your own niche. Lone rangers are just not so cool anymore. We need each other, y'all, and here are some ways to do just that.
I purposely seek out and follow as many local artists and business I can find in my niche. Why? Because while I might have something good going on my own, magical things happen when we join forces. I dare you to try this and watch what happens!
Join a cause:
What are your philanthropic passions? Register your business with a charity and use part of your proceeds to benefit your community. If you don't have that ability, find creative ways give of your time and the services you provide. Not only will this help you make valuable connections but the feeling that comes from being part of the solution in our world is personally life altering. I promise you won't regret it.
Create a cause:
Let's say you aren't able to find a cause that really tugs at your heart strings enough to get you motivated to rally alongside--create one! It doesn't take anything more that what you're already working with in your chest cavity to start a cause.
These are just three ways to make your team of one into a powerful force.
Until next time!
With all my love and team spirit,
