3 Reasons Business Owners Get Stuck Growing Their Business?
Business owners get frustrated as hell when they get stuck growing their business! But, over the more than 2 decades of helping small business owners, there are three distinct problems that I see consistently get in their way. When you solve them, you find business owners aren’t stuck growing their business anymore.
Now, these three problems are not what you might think. That’s because they’re not the symptomatic problems. That is, they’re not things you normally hear business owners complain about. Things like fixing cash flow, dealing with employees, no time for their family, feeling chained to their business, etc.
That’s because these three problems are “root causes”. If you fix these “root cause” problems, you see most symptomatic problems evaporate on their own!
What are the 3 Reasons Business Owners Get Stuck Growing Their Business?
Here are the three “root-cause” problems and links to more in-depth solutions to each:
- Business owners don’t understand business growth is a defined process.
- Business owners work their business for a paycheck, instead of building an income generating asset.
- Business owners lose track of why they started the business in the first place.
