Staying Small

staying small | Kelsey Mitchener Editing Services

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my small business: how to shape it; how to grow it. In the next few months I’m looking to do some big things and make some big changes, but I always want to stay small.

I love being a one-woman show, the smallest of teams (for one thing, I happen to love my boss). But sometimes I listen too much to voices around me. You’re too isolated, they say. You’re not a team player. You’ll never be enough on your own. Well, they’re wrong. When you love what you do and you’re awesome at doing it, I say just keep doing what you’re doing. (And surround yourself with kinder voices.)

Anyway, I’m loving this gentle reminder from entrepreneur Jason Fried that there’s nothing wrong with staying small.

  1. I hope your changes help you grow, even as a one-woman show. Hopefully you also find the support you’re seeking. I know I like to support small business.
