If you’ve ever worried that your small business is outdistanced and outclassed by the huge corporate giants around you, Harry Vaishnav feels your pain.
A veteran small business owner himself, Vaishnav has spent the last 15 years advising businesses large and small, but he has a special place in his heart for the little guy.
A firm believer in the power of small business, Vaishnav tells his mom and pop clients not to be intimidated by big boxes like Best Buy and Wal-Mart. Instead, he advises using two of the small business owner’s chief weapons, intimate customer relationships and focus, to cut out a niche market that larger companies cannot reach.
Vaishnav is passionate about helping small business owners find these niches and grow profitable businesses in them.
To further his message, he launched Small Biz Viewpoints where he shares insight, guidance, and information with small business and franchise owners, buyers, and sellers, helping them make the most of their opportunities.
Vaishnav also consults with small business owners regularly on business planning and due diligence at Angel Business Advisors.
His experience comes from battle-hardened time in the big and small business world. Vaishnav and his wife spent five years successfully owning and operating a multi-unit franchise, and have experience buying existing franchises, opening and operating new franchises, and selling franchises. He also spent time advising Fortune 500 companies, giving him additional experience with larger businesses too.
Vaishnav, a member and contributor to the BizSugar community since 2010, says he believes the community has helped him and helped other entrepreneurs in achieving their small business objectives.
“BizSugar.com is a perfect example of how small business owners can leverage Internet and social media to their advantage and fight the bigger rivals,” he explains.
“I enjoy connecting with other small business experts and contributing to the repository of small business related information,” he adds. “BizSugar also is a great resource to get inspiration for articles for my blog. Besides, it provides a great exposure to my blog.”
