Why Do So Many Small Businesses Fail?

With with all of the free information available to start a business, some are still failing?

One Issue is that the problem lies squarely with you, the business owner. This is a tough pill to swallow, but someone’s got to say it. And as someone who has also built businesses that struggled to make even enough money to pay myself, year after year, I’ve been where you are. Who better to be truthful than someone who’s been there?

One of the core problems is that you’re thinking too small.
Stuck in the trap of “A big business is too much work”, you’ve doomed yourself to running around, doing the jobs of 6 people while making the income of one person–or, truthfully, less than one person. Fear holds you back from growing your business larger, because while you’re doing the work of 6 people now, you can’t imagine growing your business larger. 
Growing it larger, after all, would mean you’d have to do more work. There’s no way you can put any more on your plate! It’s overflowing and bursting! Your family is already getting less time than they would otherwise. Growing the business may result in you getting a divorce!

It’s about this time that many business owners give up. “I could do better just getting a job,” they think. So they go back to working a day job, or consulting, or they scale the business down. That is, however, exactly the wrong decision.

If you do not go after what you want, you'll never have it
If you do not ASK, the answer will always be no.

If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.
