Monday Motivation: Venture Off the Beaten Business Path and Think Canadian

Canadians are an adventurous bunch, even if we do exercise caution along the way.  It’s important to let that aspect of our personality shine through when running a Canadian Web-based business so we’ll stand out from the crowd.

Sometimes we get so caught up in learning how to do business online that we forget to think for ourselves.  Let your inner Canadian out to come up with original ideas for your business, from the concept to the marketing.  Set your mind adrift to explore with no map so it can form new, natural angles and notions.  Remind yourself that your market is Canadian, so it’s OK to think like one.  In fact, it’s best if you do!

We’ve designed a meme for you to share on your site or social media to motivate your clients, staff and colleagues. It features a quote by a very creative Canadian, Alexander Graham Bell, on a background photo of the British Columbia rainforest.
