Small business survival strategies for the future

One of the most important things I’ve learned about doing business in the 21st century, where the velocity of change is taking our breath away, is that while it’s still okay to fall in love with what you do, it’s not okay to fall in love with how you do it.  No too many products have become extinct over the past decade, but many market strategies have gone by the boards in that period. Paradigms are shifting all over the place, but not so much on goods and services themselves, as on how our customers acquire and apply those products.

Recently, Wally Bock and I talked about this on my radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show, including specific small business survival strategies we have witnessed, implemented ourselves and helped other implement.

Wally is an original member of my Brain Trust, going all the way back to 1997, and the author of several books, plus his blog, Three Star Leadership Blog. Take a few minutes to listen to my conversation with Wally and, as always, leave your own thoughts on your best survival strategies and practices. Listen Live! Download, Too!
