Challenges Faced by Small Business Owners
Small business owners wear many hats, dealing with the demands of:
- Meeting payroll
- Managing cash flow
- Employee training
- Internet security
- Lead generation
- Sales tracking
The list goes on and on …
Unfortunately, being able to multi-task is often accepted as ‘a cost of doing business’ by many small business owners. And yet, one of the more serious consequences or trade-offs of wearing many hats as a small business owner is the inability to focus on WHY you went into business in the first place.

Start with Why
That’s why it’s important to work on your business, and not in your business!
Ex-advertising executive and author, Simon Sinek studied the success of world leaders and businesses, and in his book, Start with Why introduced the concept of a company’s WHY – emphasizing that people don’t buy what you do or how you do it, they buy why you do it!
Our mission: Helping small business owners focus on WHY they’re in business, so they can spend more time working ON their business … and achieve success!
