TRICK: “Identifying and spending time with others (through happy hours, emails, etc) who run a small business in my same industry. Although they are technically competitors, they also experience the same problems I have. Sharing ‘tricks’ of how we have solved the problem we all have, has allowed me to solve these problems more quickly than if I had to figure it out myself…
Which has led to the TREAT of having this group of fellow small business owners become incredibly great friends and referral sources.”
