What Self-Reliance-Succeeds.com is about
As you might imagine on the basis of the name of this blog Self-
Reliance-Succeeds.com is about self reliance and success – both
personal and business. Our intent is to particularly focus upon
the role of self reliance in helping small and home businesses to succeed.
Self reliance is a simple concept that encourages us to be responsible
for our own needs and circumstances. Accomplishing the feat of
becoming more self reliant can be far from simple and require
intensive planning and functional management.
Our goal here is to provide you, our readers, with reasons why self
reliance is a worthwhile achievement, the encouragement to be more
self reliant and illustrate the ways you can do so. A self reliant person
\could be viewed as a survivalist. Although accurate to an extent,

is really a continuum of small positive changes than reduce reliance
upon artificial Potemkin-like support systems and replace them, action
by action, with well-planned real support.
We do not advocate withdrawal from society and becoming isolated from
it. Rather we will encourage you to build the strength and resourcefulness
to fulfill your obligations to yourself, your family, your business and its
employees and to society as a whole.

becomes less self reliant and, by definition, more dependent, it it loses

or even your family.
