“A small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” When Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, he showed us how a small start could lead the way to infinite possibilities, and in this case, how we small businesses can give back.
Start your contribution with a small business. Don’t get me wrong. If you are already running a multi-million dollar company then you carry on. Your influence on the macro economy is invaluable.
For those who are still at the entry level, I implore you to start a small or a micro scale business.
This is no rocket science. But the last I heard, common sense wasn’t easy to grasp either. So here are a few things to note.
- Smaller spending capacity – at the entry level, you may require less amount of cash for your business. For example, you can still operate your business by using the free version of Financio software. Hint. Your small rent will also help the small property investor to get by.
- Economical adaptability – small businesses, especially really small businesses usually have a closer relationship with the customers compared to conventional retail businesses. The sense of loyalty will help the business stay afloat through the tough economic climate, and the closeness will help you understand the needs of your customers better.
- Job opportunity – as a business, you need to have employees to delegate to and to help out in your business. Somewhere out there, a kid is staying off the street by working part-time at a small business joint.
- Room for good – giant corporations started out small before the perseverance paid off. What you start and what you’ll end up with might not be the same but the growth will be worth the small beginning. You could start by giving small now and give bigger later.
The growth of small businesses has shown promise. From the birth of more successful entrepreneurs who are eager to help you start, to today’s technology advancements like Financio. We have come a long way to go in the business world.
