Let’s face it: we all wish we could pull a successful, running business out of a hat, but that just isn’t how it happens. Setting out on your own with an idea and a business plan can be pretty scary. Navigating the uncertainty of a new business is not only terrifying but also difficult. Just look at the statistics: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Business Employment Dynamics, 20% of small businesses fail within the first year, and about 50% fail by their fifth year.
Luckily, those statistics do not have to define you. From brand identity to finding your dream clientele, running a small business is all about realizing how to make your strengths work for you.
Having owned and operated my own small business for more than two decades, I can easily relate to small business owners every step of the way. Because I have experienced all the twists and turns of business ownership, I decided it was time to reveal my success tips. Over the past 20+ years I have recognized the ways in which we fall into the trap of business failure. While the first few years are the hardest, finding someone who has been there to guide you in your task is crucial.
It takes hard work, persistence, and, sometimes, even a little magic to power through the first few years of business. I want to give other entrepreneurs a few magical tools to add to their toolbelts. If you’re needing an extra push to keep working towards your goal of a lasting small business, I am just the one for you.
