“Home-based businesses are one of the fastest-growing segments in our economy, and that trend will only continue, as the age of the corporation, which began barely a century ago, now gives way to the age of the entrepreneur.” – Paul Zane Pilzer, Author and Nobel Prize Winning Economist
Join a company for the right reasons. A business has to have a product/service that I feel passionate about. For me, I won’t sell anything that I don’t believe is a benefit to myself, my community and this planet.
There are 1000s of small businesses in my community and yours. Local businesses that you nor I know about. The knowledge of their existance is changing. Enter Groupon, Living Social and The Customer Advantage. These companies are making these small businesses known. They recognize the benefit of supporting local businesses. Local businesses employ 68% of employed people.
Getting In Front of a Trend
Technical and Social Media is changing everything. Look at Groupon. Groupon’s membership grew to 40 Million in just two years. Groupon was able to get in front of a trend (Group Buying). Group Buying is a major new trend and Groupon is now the fastest growing business in the history of business! Faster than Google, faster than Amazon, faster than any company you can think of. Their business is so successful they recently turned down a $6 Billion dollar buy out from Google!
Look at Facebook and how it developed. Mark Zukerberg didn’t have any idea what he was creating when he started Facebook. It was a change that was ready to happen and was going to happen with or without him. He was able to get in front of the change. Now look at where he is.
