Allow me to explain why I do business differently than my successful multi-decade entrepreneur uncle. I’ll explain why politics belong in business, how my political activism shapes my business, and how taking a stand can benefit businesses.
You’re familiar with the phrase “Your actions speak louder than your words.” But in today’s tense political environment, what you don’t say about the issues is quickly becoming more significant than anything else. Because in an extremist political atmosphere, you cannot straddle the division. When you try to remain neutral, your silence starts to become suspect.
I had a chance to talk to Elaine Rau who runs LadyBossBlogger, a blog about the who and why behind female entrepreneur brands. She shares tips on business, how she’s grown a successful business blog, and why your content marketing might not be working.
If you’re still feeling reluctant to involve yourself in politics, I’ve got some important info to share with you. Whether you’re interested in politics or not as a civilian, if you’re a business owner your interest or disinterest is irrelevant. You have to engage.
Even if you’re a solopreneur like me and have no employees to worry about, there are a number of policy issues that directly affect you and your business.
If you’re like me— a scrappy solopreneur always looking for inexpensive ways to make her life a little easier —then this blog post is 100% for you.
If you’re not a solopreneur (that’s someone who owns and runs a business on their own), but you use technology to write, post on social media, or do any other sort of work, this blog post will still be very helpful to you.
