What stage of business are you in right now? Is it launch, build or grow? Does it matter?
What should you be focused on in your business? Is it profits? Customer Retention? Operations?
Are you set up properly to grow and if you are, will you be able to leverage capital or attract investors to make it happen?
The first time I started a business, I was at college. It sounded like a good idea, I had a partner with complementary skills and we were broke. As soon as things started happening and money started coming in the door we got overwhelmed. We had no idea what we were doing.
When I meet with business coaching clients today, many start by telling me that they're "all over the place" or that they "just need some direction."
If you're like many small business owners then you are working long hours and putting in incredible amounts of work with no consistent sales. You have some great months and many more not-so-great months but you love what you do. You're trying everything you see others doing to market yourself but the results are short lived.
