I am always so impressed both in Ireland and online, when small business owners get together, great things happen. We know that "going it alone" is foolish, when there is so much support and resources out there to avail of, tap into and contribute to.

Humans were never meant to be alone, we are social, naturally form alliances, circles and are naturally waring (is that a word?) so whether we are collaborating or fighting, we are doing it with each other.

Our business can only benefit from this interaction. We could minimise the fighting of course, if we left our fears and pride in the dishwasher with the cereal bowl in the mornings :)
