5 Things We Love About Small Business (And Not Just in October)Posted by Celeste
October is Small Business Month! But here at Write Ahead – Small Business Month is every single month.After all, 98% of all companies in British Columbia are small businesses – and the small business movement isn’t just local to BC.
So to celebrate Small Business Month along with the rest of you, here is our roundup of reasons we love small business:
1. The People
Behind every small business is a person who had the courage to go it alone and try something new. Entrepreneurs are a special breed and their courage, drive, and enthusiasm are totally energizing. It is fantastic to work with them on a daily basis.
2. The Creativity
Making something where nothing existed before is an awesome feeling. Small business takes blank space in the marketplace and fills it with products and services that change the way we live. In some cases, small business transforms whole communities one storefront at a time.
3. The Speed
Small business can react incredibly quickly to market demands and create customer solutions in an instant. If the market changes suddenly, small businesses simply change with it. There is no delay between noticing an unfilled need and launching a product that fills the gap. In a small business, everyone involved is on the front lines and can respond to market demands.
4. The Social Responsibility
Small business owners are important members of the communities in which they operate. The money that goes into a small business ultimately goes back into the community in the form of jobs, but also as sponsorships of local charities and events. When you support small business, you are supporting your community.
5. The Fun!
Small business is hard work, but we have so much fun along the way. It is incredibly dynamic and an environment in which the rules are written as we go along. Every project that we work on has a unique spirit and twist, and each day at work is a true pleasure.
