In helping small business owners for more than 2 decades, I consistently see 3 distinct problems causing them to get frustrated as hell. You get stuck growing your business because you have one or more of theses problems! Solve these problems and you get un-stuck growing your business!
You probably aren’t thinking about any of these 3 problems. That’s because they’re not symptomatic problems. You normally hear business owners complain about. fixing cash flow, dealing with employees, no time for their family, feeling chained to their business, etc.
These three problems are “root causes”. If you fix “root cause” problems, you see most symptomatic problems evaporate on their own!
The 3 Reasons You Got Stuck Growing Your Business
Here are the three “root-cause” problems causing you to get stuck growing your business:
- You don’t understand business growth is a defined process.
- Working your business for a paycheck, instead of building it into an asset.
- Losing track of why you started the business in the first place.
You probably think these are secondary problems, but they are at the root of many of the problems that your struggle with in your business every day. When you fix these problems, you fix all the little issues you deal with every day!
