Seth Godin said Bonhomie is underrated. I’ll take it one step further and say Bonhomie is essential.

It’s what’s missing when Small Business Owners keep plugging away on their own. Many people go to a coffee shop to work, just to be around others. Other people isn’t what’s missing. It’s the camaraderie, the laughs, the relaxed sharing that happens when people who truly like each other get together.

How can you get it when you are a solopreneur with nary a water cooler surrounded by coworkers in sight? Join. Join bookclubs, join online clubs, join organizations, get out and network, volunteer, take classes, go to workshops and conferences. In other words, step away from the keyboard or drawing board and spend time having fun with other people.

This isn’t just underrated, it’s essential.

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.
