Entrepreneurial Challenges Newsletter Seventeenth Edition | WHY is your business struggling to survive?

Most self-employed entrepreneurs struggle to keep their businesses afloat.  The true story is even more frightening. Research has proved that most   self-employed businesses do not survive more than two years.

Are you satisfied with the progress in your business?

No financial stress?  No unpaid accounts? No personnel problems?  Growing market for your products or services? Enough free time? Balance between personal and business life?

If you are positive on all these questions there is no need to read any further.

If you are uncertain – read more!

  • The crucial question is: WHY?
  • What are the reasons for business failure?

Are they doing something wrong?

The same question applies to those businesses that are successful, those that do not have these problems.

  • What are they doing right?

What are the reasons for their success?

For the self-employed entrepreneur there is a saying: “The buck stops with you”.

You cannot blame anybody else. Not the clients, not the economy, not politics, not the government, nobody else, “the buck stops with you”.

Failure to understand that “the buck stops with you” is one of the biggest mistakes most self-employed business owners make. The fact is that unless the actual cause of the problem is identified, you will not be able to fix it.

Once you realise this, solutions are available.

The biggest asset or liability of your business is yourself. You are the only person who can determine the future of your business.

Investing time and money on your personal development will be the best investment you will ever be able to make. It will give you the biggest return on your investment that you could wish for.

In the Secret of my Success: Personal Excellence | Business Mastery Program you will learn to:

  • Know and understand your own story. What are your beliefs about your business? What influence do your habits have on the sustainable development of your business? Many other related issues are addressed to assist you in evaluating yourself and the impact it may have on your business success.
  • Recognise that you have unique strengths. If you do not know, understand and optimize these you will not achieve the full potential of your business. We will assist you in this process.
  • Know the power of your WHY. You will not be fully and continuously motivated if you do not understand and apply these principles. It will assist you to appoint staff, build your team and have an engaged team working for you. It will guide you to develop your communication strategy internally and externally in your organization and many more benefits.

This ]experience is a unique combination of tools to assist the self-employed to improve his self knowledge.

It has been proven that self-employed entrepreneurs who invest time and money in their own self-development tend to be more successful in their businesses than those who do not.
