When you go into business, it’s so easy to view everyone in the same line of work as you as “the enemy”. It’s understandable – you are technically competing for clients after all. However, getting shut of this competitive attitude can actually work in your favour in a lot of ways.

Your entrepreneurial venture can’t be successful in a vacuum. Whether you are a web-based company without local ties, a small business rooted in one neighbourhood or a real estate company in the thick of many regions, you can take the lead on contributing to local communities in a number of ways.
