Dear Entrepreneur,

Shutting yourself away from everyone is a common mistake too many entrepreneurs make, especially when times are tough. Sometimes you can be your own worst underminer. You start feeling like a fraud when your business is slowing down. Instead of feeling that way, start going to more networking events, and while you do that, try raising more awareness of your business through social networks.

Your business will start to pick up when you keep fighting the recession. Promise yourself to get your name and the name of your business out there. If you don’t have one already, create an advisory board for your business, you can consult about business challenges. Talk to people who have been there and done it and fallen through the same hole. Be social, even if you don’t feel like it.

With love,
