What’s your biggest fear? Public speaking? Spiders? Failure?
I’d wager failure is pretty high up on the list. Especially if you’re a small business owner.
As you know, it’s great to be able to run your own business. But there are responsibilities that go with the freedom. Screw up badly enough, for long enough, and your business will fail. You’ll fail.
Fortunately, this doesn’t have to be as scary as it sounds. While most small businesses do fail, yours doesn’t have to be among them. Even more fortunately, the things that cause small businesses to fail are oddly consistent. There’s a surprisingly small pack of causes that tend to do them in.
