Dog Days of Summer & Your Local Challenge

Monday, August 04, 2014

Posted by Keith Hall

It’s August, which I guess means that we are in the dog days of summer; lots of hot weather but also lots of swimming pools and cold glasses of lemonade.  The good news for me is that despite the season there are still lots of questions from NASE members that we get to answer every day.  One NASE member posted a question regarding income earned during a speaking engagement overseas, actually in London, England.  Her question made me realize all over again just how pervasive the influence of small business continues to be.  Way to go Cheryl!!!

Most of us don’t get a chance to speak or to talk about our small businesses in places like London, but almost all of us get that chance right in our own neighborhood.  Making a difference with other small business owners, doing business together, sharing resources, and staying connected have always been one of my favorite things about small business owners.  My challenge to you for August is to find three other small businesses in your community and share your story with them.  Talk about your business and then listen to their story.  You never know where your next best customer will come from and it would be great if it were another small business owner just like you.


Meanwhile…Keep up the Good Work!!!
