Helping out

Kieran Allen

Small Businesses are amazing. What I love about them is the significant amount of energy that surrounds them – a level of energy which you struggle to find elsewhere. Working with those who are grafting daily to make their dream a reality is a high unmatched by anything else. This is why I love helping out. Small businesses present an opportunity to truly help make a difference. I think it’s great to get involved with a business purely to help. If the business is small enough you may be able to make an incredible difference; something which may not be possible at a larger scale.

Find some local businesses and offer them some of your time – think of it as your marketing costs. These people will be fantastic portfolio work (and a little bit of good karma never goes astray).
