In this week’s edition of Micro Business Tips Thursday, on the heels of our Small Business Happiness Index results being released earlier today, we wanted to get a better sense of how micro business owners stay happy. To help give us an idea, we asked our Facebook community the following question: What is your one tip for staying happy as a small business?
Our index found that 77 percent of micro businesses remain happy, and the feedback we received from our great community of entrepreneurs certainly supported those findings. We recieved a ton of great tips, but Keiron Hubbard comments stuck out to us:
“Stay enthusiastic no matter what happens, you’ll have your good and ‘not so good’ times in business, just stay positive and NEVER get lax on customer service and satisfaction. Good customer service doesn’t cost anything but reaps great rewards morally, ethically and socially. REMEMBER word of mouth travels faster than anything. Make EVERY customer/client feel special.”

So what helps keep you happy with running your own small business? We’d love to hear what different entrepreneurs are doing to keep such a high rate of small business happiness! Please feel free to share your tips and feedback below in the comment section.
Be sure to tune into our Facebook page next week for your chance to be featured on this blog.
