4. HOW TO FURTHER HELP & INSPIRE ONE ANOTHER

4.1 The members on urBIZassist platform are joining for help. They may feel shy, vulnerable, and even anxious if their business is not doing well. They are putting themselves out there and chose urBIZassist because of our reputation and offerings. We need to treat them respectfully, and with compassion and strive to elevate positive impact.

4.2 If someone posts a “Help” request and you have encountered the same issue, you may reach out and offer to help. You will build your network and you never know that very person might help you in the future. Think of how good you feel after a problem is solved. Pay it forward! pass some knowledge along to someone else and spread the good vibes.
