According to Jayne Tancred from small business blog Flying Solo:

“Regardless of your industry, you draw on your creativity every time you solve a problem, come up with the right metaphor to help a client understand a technical issue or move one step closer to the vision of the business you’re striving to create out of nothing.
“In other words, every small business on the planet has creativity built into its DNA.”

Tancred recommends setting aside adequate time and space that encourages small business owners to think laterally and open their minds to valuable insights. You can use an app, a journal or a regular brainstorming session with your team or mentor to help you get into the habit of thinking outside the box.
