Online business owners need friends, too

You can find meaningful friendships online and offline and many of those friendships can help you grow your online business. Get the details on exactly which friends can do that in episode 121.

 “You need to be able to sell without even meeting your customers!”

-Bonnie L. Frank 

In today's episode, I discuss attributes of friendship, how you can find meaningful friendships offline and online and how many of those friendships can actually help you grow your online business. You may not have friends who understand your business (or business in general) and that’s why it's so important to find friends and colleagues who understand what you're going through in business and/or have been through it themselves. You can find these groups on Facebook, LinkedIn, on audio only platforms like on Clubhouse, Twitter Spaces, Facebook audio rooms, etc.

If you're looking to find a truly supportive business group and you're ready to grow your business NOW, check out the Business Fabulous Academy! The next round starts on February 7 and you can join by heading right now to
