I was recently searching through a filing box of stuff I’d once thought worth keeping. And while much of it should have been dumped a long time ago, I found a single page with few words but a lot of wisdom. Since most textile screen shops in Canada are small businesses, I’m sharing it here. It shouldn’t need further explanation. . .

It’s title . . . 8 Golden KEEPS of Small Business

  1. KEEP it simple.
  2. KEEP a lid on costs.
  3. KEEP it only if it’s profitable.
  4. KEEP working on your business.
  5. KEEP researching.
  6. KEEP a notebook.
  7. KEEP it at work.
  8. KEEP it fun.

The only KEEP I’d add is, KEEP reminding yourself of this list.
