Dr. Seuss: If You Never Did, You Should.
“If you never did, you should. These things are fun. And fun is good.”
~ Dr. Suess
Grow by Trying New Things!
In life and small business, make it a point to try new things. This is where growth happens! And as Dr. Seuss says, “If you never did, you should!” You might not like all of them, but you might LOVE some of them. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Large in-person networking and huge conferences will become normal again! For now, we are still in the middle of a worldwide pandemic and different nations/regions/states/localities have opened up to differing degrees. But what has come out of the pandemic is an explosion of online networking opportunities. Not sure where to start? Find a group, get your elevator pitch ready, and just go! “If you never did, you should!”
Do you want to improve your engagement on a specific social media platform? For many businesses, by the way, that is LinkedIn. Are you looking for a social media posting and scheduling tool, and have never used one before? We all know that a stronger digital footprint is critical today. Who knows, you might decide that, “These things are fun, And fun is good.”
Blogging is one of the best ways to create fresh content and appease the search engines. What are you expert at? Write about that. What are you curious about? Is there a subject that pertains to you industry that you want to know more about? Research it and write about that. The list of blogging subjects is endless. Give it a go. “If you never did, you should!”
Napoleon Hill stated that many minds are better than one. This is the core concept of a mastermind group. Even though you are exploring and trying new things, you can’t know everything about business. And that is not a bad thing. In a mastermind group, each brings their experience to the table to help you, and you will do the same for them. You will learn you are not alone, and that what you are facing is most likely not unique. Never been in a mastermind group? “If you never did, you should.”
This is a small sampling of ideas of new things to try. You will think of others. There are many resources to help you along the way.
