COMMUNITY VS COMPETITION

Small Business

“Comparison is the thief of joy.” -Theodore Roosevelt ⠀

Running a small business with a social media presence can be hard. You’re constantly met with people who have more success than you. They have amazing pictures of their products.

The have gorgeous photos of their family.⠀

They have a follower count that dwarfs your own.

You may be tempted to mutter something under your breathe and hit that unfollow button.

But before you start comparing their work to your own, try to appreciate what they’ve done.⠀

Find something positive and leave a comment.

Choose to see them as part of your community. Try to learn something from them. Let them inspire you to try something new. ⠀

Because your feelings won’t affect them, it will only impact you. Don’t let their success make you forget about your own.
