I'm not going to tolerate the disrespect for Small Business Owners and on this episode, I stand up for us. I was "motivated" (read: triggered) by a tweet that claimed how great it is that "Wharton MBA students are going to bypass Wall Street and open a boring small business in any town, USA." The tweet and its replies went on to reassure everyone that if only this group of geniuses could open small businesses then we'd all see the US economy explode. I'm all for brilliant operators and heck yeah it would be great to welcome this group more frequently to our ranks. But, the attitude and inference that current small business owners are "less than" or in need of being saved set me off. So, enjoy the rant in segment one.

Also on this episode:

  • Every small business owner gets overwhelmed and burned out from time to time. We talked with Dawnell Kelly from Auxly Help to learn how she helps her clients organize and prioritize their tasks to get it all down WITHOUT the burnout.
  • Need to promote an event? In the Idea Collective Small Business Incubator we took over an Idea Slam to brainstorm 30 non-traditional places to promote your next event or offer. This segment will help you expand your audience and get butts in seats!
  • Sure, you network, but do you go beyond "Know, Like, and Trust" to building real influence with your connections? Chris Dyer of Chris Dyer Consulting shares how to build deeper connections during professional networking.

Tired of working on your small business all by yourself? Wish you could have allies and partners willing to answer your questions, pick you up when you're struggling and celebrate when you're winning?
