You may have heard that last week was National Small Business Week. And I didn’t hype it up in this space because, well, that’s the kind of stuff we do all the time. It is not necessarily a bad thing to set aside specific time to give extra attention to important things, but it is a better thing to pay attention to them all the time.
So maybe waiting a week makes anything I say here take on a little more importance because we don’t have to only talk about these things when the calendar dictates it. And one very clear reason for this is we are a small business ourselves. We have either been where you are or understand where you are. No special week required.
At least partially tied in with that is an urge to see small businesses succeed. On the surface, some of the work we do is (seemingly) easily understood and just takes away some tasks from a business owner. Beneath that, though, what we do can be used to go further and provide information that can help a business pinpoint different ways to thrive. No special week required.
A lot of times this moving beyond the obvious comes from needing that outside look. No one starts a business and understands all the aspects of running the enterprise. Help will be needed from outside people with expertise in areas where you do not have it. And we provide value by giving that and then potentially moving to things you didn’t even think we could do. No special week required.
So yes, we do want to celebrate small businesses, but we want to celebrate them all the time. And this covers a large spectrum of cases – from those who are just contemplating how they might enjoy starting a new venture to those who may be on the verge of no longer just being a ‘small’ business. We enjoy it all.
This then comes with the hope that it can spur some conversation. Again, this can run the gamut from how you can start a business to how we can help your growing business thrive. We cannot promise to have answers to everything, but if you think it’s a conversation worth having with us, that means we can probably at least point you in a good direction to get the answers you want. And again, these can happen whenever. No special week is required.
