Small Business Lessons

May 17, 2011

I was reading a favorite inspirational blog of mine when I stumbled upon a post that American Express had asked her to write. Her topic: some of the most important small business lessons she has learned.  I liked the points she made and so I thought I would pass some of my favorite along…

Be generous in your knowledge– ” It generates goodwill in your professional community, helps establish you as a leader, and attracts talented peers.”

In negotiations, be as quiet as you can.- “Don’t interrupt, don’t finish anyone’s sentences, pause before you respond. People want to tell you what they need. Let them. ”

Work with good people. “This goes for clients and partners. Working with people you enjoy makes your business stronger and your life better. Choose well.”

For a few more small business lessons head on over to her blog.
