One of the hardest things about having an online business is finding customers to shop or support your business. We all know there are millions of companies like yours or similar.

5 Tips on how you can grow your business local when you have an online company. | Imperfect Concepts

Running a small business can be incredibly hard and lonely at times. This is one of the reasons for establishing Business Bestie. Allowing business owners to connect all over the world, but bring it locally when they need a friend who understands and more. Last year, I wrote and shared video content on how if your small business obtains 1% of your local towns support what it could do for your company.

Aligning Your Business With Community Over Competition

How to establish a community mindset vs competition.

I personally believe behind every successful businesses owner or entrepreneur is a community of believers who has helped them go higher in ways most people never understand. Running a business is not for the faint of heart and if you’re really trying to build something great you have a really different outlook than most. In recent, years I have really honed in what I am trying to do with my life. In addition to that, I only associate with people who want to better their lives. I cannot entertain people who are okay with being mediocre. One of the promises in the bible I stand on is;

..And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you… Genesis 12:2-3
