Statistics paint a grim picture of the chances of business success: 50 percent of all small businesses fail by the end of their first year and 80 percent fail by their fifth year. It does not have to be this way!
Business owners usually have outstanding technical skills—that’s why they go into business. But talent alone is not enough. Business owners need to go beyond their technical skills and learn the business skills necessary to be successful.
Unfortunately, many owners believe hard work equals success. I’ve seen so many owners pour themselves into their businesses, sacrificing time and money, but all for nothing. They work harder and harder, doing the same things over and over, and it fails to yield the results they are looking for. There is a reason for that: They don’t have the business skills that will help to carry all of their technical expertise across the finish line.
