Chris Guillebeau just posted a great article about Community.

I just forwarded it to my mastermind group because we are building an online community for off-line business. I think that small business is the backbone of most economies and I think that many of the world’s problems would be solved through strong small businesses all over the world. A business owner who has reached a level of success looks into the wider community and solves issues around infrstructure, resource availablity and happy, healthy citizenry who will be employees and customers. Our hope is to help small business owners reach that stage.

This group will be a support, guidance, accountability partner and resource for small business owners everywhere. Small business is a tribe that is a million years old and has a billion members. All the problems have been encountered and solved many times over. We are all experts in some aspect of business. We want to share those stories.

We are set up on the platform – a great tool for communities to interact.

It is by invitation only and will be open to Beta trials by the end of June. I will post the link when it is ready. The domain we bought is We plan to launch on 30 September, 2009

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.
