May belongs to Tribes

In Tribes Seth Godin tells us to step up and lead. In these days, when people don’t talk to their neighbours, they are looking for ways to connect and it remains to us to help them do that.

People are looking for relevance. They aren’t interested in small talk, they want to talk about what is interesting to them.

People can sort themselves into any type of tribe. They are no longer constrained by geography. They can get together about purple wave petunias or be the tribe of people who don’t like purple wave petunias. All people want is someone to help them talk to each other.

I belong to Seth Godin’s Triiibes, an online group he started and let loose on the world. We’ve written a Q&A book about tribes. Here is a promo made by one of the members of Triiibes. It’s in a contest and could use your vote. Have a look and vote:

Who can you help to connect? What is your passion to share?

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
