The sport of soccer has absolutely gone bonkers in the last five years and I mean this in a good way. Our kids love to play it, we love to watch it, plus it’s a healthy, competitive environment that allows them to stay fit.
With two of my three kids actively playing soccer and one playing 10 or so months of the year, it has become part of our life. No doubt about it. Many weekends we find ourselves absorbed and traveling to and from the fields until late in the evening hours.
So why am I writing about soccer and small business ?
Very good question – Dr. Jones…(Indiana Jones that is).
You see, business development is where I’m leading to in today’s post about the world’s largest sport. Business development can occur while you are standing in line for a youth soccer match or any other sport for that matter.
Business development for your small business may be right in front of you at your child’s soccer, hockey, baseball or volleyball game. Or whatever sport you and your children have chosen to participate in.
Business development can be done while chatting with other parents, club directors, coaches, referees and even bystanders.
Now back to our topic of soccer…(not that I ever got off topic)
#1 – If you have kids – chances are they’ll be playing soccer, even if it’s just with friends.
#2 – If you have a small business or are thinking about a small business – this is a niche that is growing. Hint, hint, hint…
#3 – If you are a small business owner and your little enterprise needs targeted traffic and your biz happens to fit in with the soccer demographic…NEED I SAY MORE!?
Now maybe soccer isn’t your thing, your kids thing or maybe you don’t even have kids. But you are a small business owner and desire to diversify and/or expand.
Opportunities for business development in the youth sports arena are popping up all over. All you need to do is open your eyes and look for them.
Soccer and small business might be the right mix for your small business’ future so look for opportunities within sports like soccer. They may be right around the corner and could bring forth your next big client, service or product launch.
To your small business success,
