The holidays approach and, for so many of us, this is our most important season so having a clear, compelling value statement is an essential part of differentiating us from our chain, big-box and on-line competitors.
At last month's meeting we we had an engaging conversation about collaborative efforts to create new possibilities in our businesses. Those "little bets" were made possible by the energetic support from several HTP members and CTC members.
This Monday's meeting we will look ahead to the holiday season with an eye toward understanding our customers' perspective and explore the question, "why should people do business with me rather than with my chain competition?"
Come to share your ideas and converse with other indie business owners about shopping local for the holidays.
