Politics and entrepreneurs usually go together like oil and water. Entrepreneurs like action, and politicians like talking, and neither seem to have much time for another.
But all this political drama has got your Taskmaster all pepped-up on democracy, and it’s time to channel that excitement in today’s task – get out and meet your local pollies.
Politicians at a federal, state and local government levels are good contacts to add to your network. They are typically very well connected, and usually in touch with the big issues affecting your local area.
By establishing contact you will be able to tap into their knowledge of local issues, get the good word on local gossip and press home any issues you might be having.
Who knows, they might even be able to point you in the direction of a new initiative – a new grant, a pilot scheme, a tender – that could turn into an opportunity for your business.
So brave the hot air and get it done – today!
