I, like many other military spouses, am a small business owner. If you’re a small business owner you know how it is to spend much of your time balancing the “wants” vs. the “needs”. The economy is struggling and luxuries are something that you can no longer afford.
Recently I attended an event and noticed a group of small businesses had gotten together and pooled their resources to become sponsors thus sharing their “booth space” with each other. They were complimentary (non-competing) businesses, but they all had the same audience in mind.
Their co-op piqued my interest and so I sat back and watched. Each business owner had their own customer base. As the customers came to the booth the small business owner who knew them introduced them to the other two small business owners and their products. Genius! Each of their small networks just became a giant one. These girls knew how to make the most of their money, their networks and so much more. It paid off, they each did very well in reaching their target market and expanding their business.
That got me thinking about what other opportunities are out there for small businesses to save money? Try some of these on for size…
Are you a small/home based business owner?
Have you tried and/or had any success with these suggestions?
What idea have you employed to save money?
