Thinking about the nature of small business—small, generally, means human-scale; as opposed to BIG business, which means corporate.
We’re ALL small business, which means that our component parts are contained within our bodies and our lives. Each of us has a Sun; a Moon; Mercury; Venus; Mars; Jupiter; Saturn; Uranus; Neptune; and Pluto—not to mention countless asteroids and points—and these determine our traits and aptitudes, charting our challenges and scoring our successes.
Human beings are complex; but we are no less important than corporations, which after all are made up of many of us working together. Myriad possibilities.
To borrow a current slogan, there IS nothing small in small business.
