Seth Godin recently wrote about three kinds of business: the geography based business, the commodity based business and the community based business. He writes, “And the third type, the modern type, the type that’s the most difficult to build and the most stable once built is the community-based business.”
Yes. Some of my favourite businesses are community-based. Their survival is rooted in creation of community through what is shared.
This weekend the Vancouver Sun’s Mia Standby highlighted some community-based grocery stores in Vancouver. Take note all you community dreamers. There is much to learn.
