Happy Monday! Are you ready for the week ahead? Well then, let’s get right to this week’s round-up!
Relationships are the foundation of any business. And from gathering the right data to connecting with potential clients, creating and building business relationships is a daily task.
This week’s roundup features seven posts that focus on building business relationships.
When WUL resurfaced on Monday, I told you I’d do my best to answer any questions you about about While I Was Out. You haven’t really asked me any so far – though I do appreciate the warm welcome back, and the team does too, thank you!
So I figured I’d just share some of what I experienced the last several months… consider them reflections on a social media hiatus from a business point of view. And those of you who are small business owners yourselves might relate.
Once I “went dark,” I basically became a “normal person” (just like I did last year when I went in-house for a brief stint, except this time, it was due to a personal situation). I focused, with a laser-like intensity, on dealing with the S**t I was going through, and work. Some days were rough. Very, very rough. Work was a blessing in disguise, because I just had to get it done, which helped me take my mind off the other stuff.
All of which is not to be a drama queen, but to be candid about where I was.
The fact that I can at least sense coming out into the clear, even if I’m not as close to it as I’d like to be, is why I brought WUL back. Now, I don’t know if the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel is a steady beam yet, or still a bit of a flickering candle, but I do know that I can at least feel its warmth, if not see it completely clearly.
I know, you probably have a ton of questions, and I’ll do my best to answer them as soon as I can, but today, let’s celebrate with a Monday roundup.
Now, once you got out of your Turkey Day coma (if you were in the U.S., that is, if you weren’t… carry on!), did you have a chance to participate in Small Business Saturday over the weekend? After all, small businesses (like mine!) are an extremely important part of for the economy.
So in celebration of small businesses everywhere, this week’s roundup features seven posts from around the web that offer small business tips for all those who could use them.
Why: Today, starting a small business is relatively easy for anyone with computer access and the drive to follow through (that’s the hard part). In this post for the Social Media Hat, Calvin Sellers covers how you can make your small business stand out from the crowd.
