What Appears to be a Business Success, may in fact be a Failure!

Just because a business survives for five years, doesn’t make it a success. Are you taking the steps to have a business success or just a surviving business?

 

Sure we know that according to organizations like Kauffman Foundation and the U.S. Chamber of commerce that 75% of businesses do not survive 15 years for a number of reasons, such as undercapitalization, poor planning, overexpansion or shifting market conditions. but what about the fact that few that do survive actually reach their full potential.

 

So few entrepreneurs “think big” as Donald Trump would say. Why not?

 

Imagine if Steve Jobs limited himself to making computers for his college buddies, or Mark Zuckerberg had not expanded his company’s target from college students to everyone on the planet.

 

In order for fewer entrepreneurs to miss the opportunity, they need to take steps to overcome the lack of motivation to pursue “Big Ideas”.

An entrepreneur needs to reach outside their comfort zone, and not be content with just “the low hanging fruit” and have a team of influencers with diversity and expertise.

 

Many entrepreneurs lack the self confidence to “think big” and will need to take steps to increase their self confidence.

 

Why not be all that you can be, why simply settle for a business that survives, why not do what is necessary to build a true business success?

 Let us help you help yourself.

Having spent most of my adult life engaged in sales and marketing as well as a decade of preparing income tax returns for small businesses, individuals and real estate investors. Running your own business is not easy, you must utilize all the tools available to aid in your business development, I believe your personal development is equally important. I have for many years had knowledge and interest in small and medium sized businesses as it relates to allowable deductions, tax deferred exchanges and other tax treatments, I have also, for many years invested in books, tapes/cds for inspiration and motivation, so it seemed a natural fit for me to become involved in aiding in people in business development as well as their personal development.
