So why did I name this New Business blog Grit? Well, as a small business owner, I know and work, day in and day out, with those new to commerce, those who I strive to be like and those trying to get out, and I know we all have one thing in common; a true determination to get our businesses where we want them to be. The level of ambition varies for everyone of course, but most people I work with are committed and passionate about their business, product or service, staff, industry and customers. And to be honest, when you're out there on your own (and often up against a big shiny competitor) that's how you need to be. Do what it takes. Get the job done.
That's great, but there are also times when you need to bring people in that will have the same grit and determination you have, but for your business. No it won't be as great a determination as yours in most cases, but you know when you see it that someone really does care about helping you get to the next level. And I think that's what ID London is all about. 100% committed to working as hard for you as possible, otherwise what is the point. That's why it has taken me four years to get round to building this website. I had no time to work on this aspect of the business (or need for a website really), but things change, you have to keep moving forward.
So, in essence, you are not alone, far from it. Find mentors, get in the right resources and let other passionate people do what they are good at for you. Because a little grit between a few of you can go a really long way!
