We’ll start today, as we often do with the Fashion Incubator blog and Kathleen Fasanella. The post I want to spotlight is about how to know whether or not your idea is a good one. This is a tough thing for anyone who is starting or running a business, and Kathleen mentions some good points to consider when you’re evaluating whether your idea is a good one or should be relegated to the scrap heap.
Second up today is a post from the NNEP about going beyond your own industry to help your business. The post points out that you can learn things that can help your business from anyone, not just from people who also run the same sort of business you do. Even if you don’t do business locally, meeting other local business owners can be a great way to expand your knowledge base and spur your creativity.
Third on the docket today is a post from Robin’s Edge, which is rapidly becoming one of my new favorite blogs. Her post from Wednesday reminds us that we all are worthy and deserving. This is something that a lot of business owners forget sometimes. It’s so easy to focus on what went wrong that we often forget to celebrate what went right. Robin’s post is a good reminder to do just that.
Fourth up is this post from Tim Andrews at ASI about how companies are commemorating October which is also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As many of you already know, most of the professional sports community helps to raise awareness of breast cancer, and money companies do so as well. If your company is doing something special to raise funds for breast cancer research in October, let us know in the comments.
Finally, I wanted to toot EnMart’s horn a little and remind everyone that tomorrow is the 3rd birthday of this blog. It’s hard to believe I’ve been writing here for three years, but that is the case. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who reads and comments. Your support in helping to spread the word about new posts and your kind comments about the content of those posts has really meant a lot of all of us here. I appreciate all your support and I hope you’ll keep reading.
