I saw this statistic posted on the Small Business BC facebook page and it really got my attention. The first question I asked myself is WHY?
Why would the majority of small business owners not take any business advice?
Our business depends on us, the business owner. Being an entrepreneur is hard! But it’s not rocket science. Others have tried and failed before us – wisdom comes in learning from those mistakes.
Be smart. Let go of ego. Open your mind, without judgment or shame. Listen with a discerning ear and trust your gut to make the best decision that feels right for you and your situation.
It could literally save your business.
How many fail in their first year? (more than half) How many fail in their first 5 years? (more than 80%). How many fail in their second 5 years? (90% of those who didn’t fail in the first five years) ~ Michael Volker
