Get Connected with Business Directories
It does not matter if you work for yourself, or if you work online or off-line. Anyone in business will eventually find that getting business and staying in business requires being connected with friends, past business associates, and like-minded people.
Some famous business people from the old school are known for their extensive Rolodex files. In the digital age you can take advantage of online networks like Linkedin. You can also join groups or business directories at a local, national, or international level, or network with people in a specific industry or niche. Just think in terms of who you know, what your interests are, or other associations that could benefit your business.
The Jewish Business Owners Directory is an example of such an online directory. This directory was developed as a way to help Jewish consumers and Jewish businesses find each other, and to help Jewish businesses gain exposure to the local Jewish Community.
