Being On Your Game, Even When You’re Not Playing

When you’re running your own business, you know you have to be “on your game" even when you’re not technically “working the business." Some things to consider:

  • ALWAYS keep business cards with you – you never know who you’re going to run into at the grocery store, the library, at your son’s little league game, etc.
  • Don’t be shy—strike up a conversation about your product or service whenever possible. Don’t assume someone won’t be interested!
  • Be aware of your appearance. Dressing neatly and being well groomed show you are a professional ALL the time.
  • Keep a small notebook handy – you never know when that great idea is going to hit you!
