Look to the past
She tends to look to the past as a better time rather than focusing on adapting and/or evolving her business; this attitude is typically reflected in the business’ public facing image and it’s success.
She is nowhere close to giving up, but she’s too concentrated in keeping the business up and running to have growth goals. She is passionate and hard working, but gets confused when they she has a good month and then has a bad one.
His Attitude is...
It is a true source of actionable solutions, resources and subject matter experts
When she he is overwhelmed by the number of issues and possible solutions, she is frozen. She wishes Townsquared gave her actionable solutions, but doesn’t know how to ask for them. She’s not comfortable asking, but will jump at any resource if it is presented to her in a clear, actionable way.
Thomas finds value
The majority of business owners are like her, they are the people we set out to empower.
She’s overwhelmed and doesn’t feel empowered to have ambitions for her business, she doesn’t have clarity around what specifically to ask for because there are many issues pressing in from all angles. When prompted, she becomes highly participatory: She craves the potential of Townsquared, and just needs to be nudged in the right direction.
Thomas is valuable to Townsquared Because...

She represents the majority of our members; when she participates, others identify with her needs and motivations. This empathy for each other lowers the bar for participation, and we want to promote that.
