A microbusiness is any business with five or fewer employees. But in reality, most microbusinesses are MOM AND POP shops. You know, the ones who do everything in the business from sweeping the floors to staying up late to crunch numbers. Most of them are one-person enterprises, flying solo and working from the kitchen table, couch, or a tiny shop on main street. A single-person operation is not technically considered a business but rather a micro-enterprise or micro-entrepreneur.
Either way, we’re small, very small, but we still make a BIG impact.
I’m a microentrepreneur – just like you. I first ventured out with my own business in 2006, as a single mom. I was desperate to find a way to pay my rent so I wouldn’t lose our townhouse. It was scary and I had no idea how I was going to do it, but losing my home was scarier. Since then, I’ve started and operated several types of microbusinesses.
Our uniqueness as microbusiness owners comes from the fact that we wear all the hats and rarely have the time, experience, or budget to handle every aspect of our business. We need help but we don’t have a team (or finances) to provide that assistance.
I’ve struggled a lot over the years and learned some really hard – and expensive – lessons. My frustration at not finding the resources I needed gave way to becoming the help I so desperately wanted.
If you’re in the trenches, juggling responsibilities, and don’t know what you don’t know…I feel ya.
At Microbusiness Mentor, there’s no theories, stuffy suits, or presentations that don’t apply to a MOM AND POP or micro-enterprise. Only a fellow microentrepreneur sharing practical, leave-out-the-fluff, real walking-the-talk stuff. That’s my role as a microbusiness mentor.
Rooting for your success,
