Small business owners are a special class of people. They are invested in their dreams and hope others will see the value in their efforts. They often take a leap of faith to offer products and services, but they do not necessarily know how to "push" them into the huge marketplace including social media and the internet. I sometimes find a client stumbling block Is a hesitancy to share for fear someone will steal their ideas. On the contrary, by aligning one's name to an idea, one is more likely to be associated with that idea. That gives the user "traction."
Why is this important?
If an owner is ever called into court, there is a trail associated with your name. It confirms association with you. Learn about different types of entrepreneurs and where you align with your traits and values. Positive Potentials supports small business owners in this balancing act.

Taken a customer "pulse check" lately?
If you follow daily news and read signs around town about "We're Hiring!", we can begin to feel the uptick in business engagement. Does that mean all businesses are thriving? No.
It means the media is taking a more optimistic angle of the economy. Since we are in a "sound bite" society, the media can influence how consumers and companies respond with courage to hire again.
More than hiring, however, is a need to renew confidence in existing employees and allow wages to increase. These economic issues have layers and cannot be solved with one approach. Stay tuned . . .
In the meantime, see what you think about the following article on optimism. Post your feedback on Twitter and Facebook, hashtag #coachcubas. Thank you.
