PRLog - April 30, 2012 - TOLEDO, Ohio -- When you stop to think about the characteristics that typify the entrepreneur in today’s oftentimes unpredictable, ever changing world, risk taking, decisiveness, creativity, and most of all perseverance are just a few traits that come to mind. With National Small Business Week beginning on May 21st, Patrick Good of AdviCoach of NW Ohio says, “With more and more people choosing business ownership as a means to make a living and secure their financial future, let’s all look for ways to invest in making our local community service providers succeed.”
“As a business coach, I work with many small business owners who are hard-working, community-conscience people who enjoy contributing to their community by providing a well-needed product or service,” says Good. “I encourage people to shop at these stores on a routine basis. The better businesses are doing in our towns, the better for the community as a whole.”
Mr. Good suggests a few simple, but creative ways people can help local entrepreneurs in their community succeed:
• Use cash versus a credit card. Card companies charge a fee to process payments.
• Involve business owners in school and church programs.
• Refer a friend or neighbor when discovering a great product or service in the community.
• Acknowledge good service, and good products and services when your experience them.
“Keep your money in your community,” says Good. “It really does take the residents of a community to help the business community succeed.”
As an entrepreneur and business coach, Good helps clients significantly improve their business performance by assessing the current state of their businesses, identify and address challenges and new opportunities, educate them in business best practices and hold them accountable for the short and long term business goals.
Good works with business owners using a powerful, interactive diagnostic process to assess business performance in 21 critical areas, including staffing concerns. These areas are mapped to Advicoach’s 21 Rapid Impact Strategies, which address gaps and drive immediate results.
