Sometimes small business owners ponder what makes sense for their business to be successful.  As time goes on, the answers become easier because your connections grow, your experiences make you wiser but most of all, you surround yourself with smart people.  carefully choosing who you do business with is part of what makes your business successful.  Knowing how to choose, knowing how to problem solve and knowing who to turn to when the rough gets rougher……This is why we suggest surrounding yourself with smart people.  Intelligence comes in different forms.  You can be technologically saavy but not common sense saavy.  You can make a profit but not be customer friendly.  As a small business owner, sometimes you feel like you have to be a jack of all trades.  What we say is feel free to be a master at some trades and then turn to others to help with with the other pieces.

As website designers for example, we tell our customers to focus on what they do best and let us help them with what we know best.   The people you choose to be friends with says a lot about you.  The people you choose to do business with says a lot about your company.
