[Twitter] Other Little Ships (Thoughtograph)
Follow SmallBizTracks on Twitter or Facebook or on Google+. With strong beliefs towards small steps leading to big results , and practice and preaching on the ability to pivot as situations call it, I often compare building a business presence to being a small boat rather than a battleship. There’s much to be said for being nimble. It sometimes seems the glory is on the biggest stage or under the biggest spotlight. Small stages and spotlights have important roles, too. In the Bible I read, Mark 4:36b reads: And there were with him also other little ships. Not forgotten. Important.
