Overcoming the 5 Obstacles Business Owners Face
How to make sure you are on the right path to business success
Starting a business is a big achievement for any entrepreneur. However, maintaining the business is always the larger challenge.
According to the SBA, 95% of all small businesses fail within their first 5 years. The more shocking fact is that 95% of those that are left fail within their first 10 years. Why?
The answer is pretty simple, starting a business today is easy enough. There really isn't that much involved in getting a business started. Running and growing it, however, is another matter altogether.
Most small business owners say challenges vary drastically from day-to-day. As a business owner, it's easy to feel as if the problems your organization faces are unique. However, there is a common thread amongst the challenges.
What we have found over the last 24 years is that there are 5 main areas that, not dealt with, tend to be the cause of all of the other problems that we face as business owners. This course reviews the 5 biggest challenges that business owners face and helps you with what needs to be done to solve them.
