What could a small business hope for in these difficult times one could think? Well, there is never a price tag on fantasies, so why be a sour grape when you could be the wine. Maybe that was taking it a bit too far, but that’s the point. SOHODOX is trying to make the ‘Small Business Mother of all wish list’ for 2013. Here are a few things to start the smoke.
# More Enthusiasm: Although it’s been a better year, things have not nearly gone off the charts for most small businesses, or any business. But one could certainly hope that things will get better in 2013, and suddenly there will be a craze to buy things. Yes, that’s always a possibility.
# Viral Fever: The Internet has turned out to be a great leveler. Small businesses can compete with the big ones in this domain, and still hope to win. In 2013, small business owners would be hoping to bet their horses on making their businesses go viral. If a fat man can ride an invisible horse and win the world, why can’t anyone else?
# The Flash: Let’s face it. All businesses assume that they have the x factor, or they have the potential to crack that multi-million dollars idea. So when those hot end of year meetings happen, everyone is looking at each other and waiting for something brilliant to strike. Everyone looks like they are almost on verge of ‘cracking it’. Well if nothing else, this is something everyone will hope to find in 2013. Some great ideas, the world needs them for sure.
# An Angel / Godfather: Many businesses have it all, and yet they have been waiting to meet someone truly special. In most cases it’s an angel. Although some people into neo-noir could prefer a godfather. What we are talking about are the most elusive species known to the business kind. The investors. All small businesses want them, and surely it tops the wish list to get an investor in the year to come to finally set in motion a million un-finished plans.
This was just what we think people would be wishing for. However no one likes a know-it-all, so we don’t claim to know everything. As always we would love to hear what ‘you’ think should be on this list. That’s it from us in 2012. We will meet you next year. We hope you had a great holiday season, and wish you a very happy new year!
