Small Business Chat 2021 – Thank You!

If the past two years have taught us anything, trying to be consistent during unpredictable and ever-changing times can be a challenge, but so important to persist.

If you have tuned in and watched our Small Business Chat episodes we just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you for your time, insights, and comments.

Despite the ups and downs of 2021, we still managed to deliver 37 episodes packed with value within 30 mins (ish) that we hope helps you as a small business owner or SME with purpose.

The Chaos Of Running A Small Business or SME.

Running a business can be stressful, frustrating, and overwhelming enough so we prefer a freestyle flow of a light live chat, even though that comes with unruly curly hair, live gaffs, and medicinal mid-morning cuppas (no judgement as to what you’re drinking).

It’s not smooth or perfect but neither is business success. We’re living/working in the hot mess, so we’re going to be broadcasting from there too!

Successful Businesses – We Need You.

We’re firm believers you don’t have to wait until you are successful to make those changes. Plus with everything going on around us, small can be great too. Business can be a force for good and help drive impact.

What we do know is we can’t do it alone.

As service providers, we want you, no we need you to succeed and help drive that change.

We structure our chats with you in mind to ensure we’re asking the questions you need to know, introducing you to some great like-minded experts sharing what you need to consider to ensure you get the best service to help your business.

As we look to improving we’d like to know your feedback and ask if you’d be so kind to answer the following questions here.

Saluting Our Small Business Chat Superstars.

We could not have achieved a continuous succession of 37 episodes this year without our brilliant guests in our network.

Many, many thanks to them for sharing their time and insights and if you haven’t checked out their episodes (where have you been?!), you can view them all here.

Please be sure to like the episode, provide a comment, and please subscribe to the channel. We have included their details within the episode description so please do connect with them directly – we chose them for a reason!
