When Small Business Owners of Southern Ontario (SBOSO) started, we were just a few fellow entrepreneurs struggling to find the voice of our business and carve out a supportive and inspiring space for us to find information and connect with other like minded individuals.
The Small Business Owners of Southern Ontario Facebook Group, started as a supportive environment to ask questions, share ideas, and get tips and tricks from other creative entrepreneurs and small business owners.

Having spent a GORGEOUS weekend in the Bruce Peninsula at Valerie and Todd’s, I am thrilled to be able to share their small business story and some beautiful photos of their business, On The Rocks Guest Inn. Not only were the accommodations spectacular, Valerie and Todd went above and beyond to provide every bit of local knowledge and charm that the Bruce Peninsula and Tobermory has to offer!
“We serve our community, our children and their families. We believe providing children a interactive space to learn and grow they can become their authentic selves, They will be inspired to learn and invested in the process. Plus, when we forget to be our authentic self, we can come back to self love and replenish ourselves together. When children see us loving ourselves they will love themselves. “
“I write a blog three times a week to inspire entrepreneurs, leaders, students and anyone who needs to remember that they have what they need to be the change. I also speak at schools and businesses about embracing failure, having grit, being resilient and never giving up. I have a book, The Treasure You Seek, at Indigo and Amazon highlighting the same message. ”
“There's so many exciting things happening with SBKM it's kind of a challenge to come up with just one. (Good problem to have!) I think I'm most excited at the prospect of seeing other crocheters make my designs, seeing pictures on social media of the characters they make from my patterns gives me a thrill every time. My biggest goal in relation to this is to publish a book with my patterns and stories in.”
These are all just a very few initial tips to help you conduct a more organized day to day routine. Organization strategies are key to having a well run and enjoyable business, and sometimes it helps to have a professional get those strategies in place.
When I use the word Entrepreneur, I am referring to someone who puts everything on the line for the sole purpose of pursuing the success of a “Big Idea”.
The Entrepreneur personally assumes the risks in order to realize his or her dream. They work for themselves, not others. They forge their own destiny. Their success is entirely dependent on their ability to deliver. Sometimes, especially in the beginning, the Entrepreneur relies on their savings account or spouse to pay for the daily living expenses. But the ultimate goal is always, that the Entrepreneur will pay for the business AND their share of the living expenses. Someday. Sooner, rather than later.
