Successful Small Business Owners – Now is the Time to Give Back

Help

To get our economy growing we need to give back. If you’ve had some success building your own small business this is how you can help:

  1. Start by mentoring a few start-ups
  2. Teach a small business course at your local college, school or business support centre
  3. Use social media(Blog, Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn) to share your knowledge and experience
  4. Write a book or ebook on what it takes to build a successful small business
  5. Encourage, motivate and inspire people to take their ideas and turn them into a viable business

  1. Hello All, what I find very frustrating is the lack of one-stop- business start up resource centre in our large city of Toronto- problably none exist in this Canada. Instead of disconnected services at Enterprise Toronto (local) – NRC-IRAP/BDC (National) and provinical resources -MARs group etc. and their half-hearted, “exclusive” club mentality, what is needed is to bring all these services together under one roof (all 3 levels) lower entry level- Do not discriminate- Canada is already multicultural please and most important – Give the small businesses resepect they deserve. Governments/ media/ “experts” agree small business are the very important tour economies yet to start one- you are ridiculed, made to go through hell- this encourages extreme selfishness- watch CBC's Dragon show. Many startups do not need money at first- just organized guidance from the early years- this is not there. We can easily shift the 90% business failures to 90% success if there was real assistance for businesses.
