Being a new business it can be hard to find support. Part of being a new business means that you’re required to socialize, and make new friends or connections. This can be crucial to your success.
Many cities or towns have memberships available where the local businesses can get together, meet, and be part of something a little larger than just themselves. For us here in Peterborough Ontario, that is the Peterborough Chamber. We joined roughly a month or two ago, have gone to a couple events and have had a great time at all of them. It’s a great way to network and get to know other business owners in the area.
These events can provide a great local structure, give you some basic advice for running your business.
Hell, they even have some breakfast, lunch or dinner events with other hard working members in your area. I don’t know about you, but we all have great relationships with food over here at Niteowl Creative.
