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!
