Business Development & Strategy Planning

Growing a small business today isn’t easy. If it was, all small business (10M and under) would be successful and all the owners would be wealthy. This certainly isn’t true.According to 2016 statistics published by the Small Business Administration (SBA), about 78% of small business startups survive the first year and about half of all employer establishments survive at least five years. A third survive ten years or more. This translates into a 22% first year failure rate, 50% five-year failure rate and 66% ten-year failure rate.

Yet, if done right, entrepreneurship is one of the most rewarding adventures.  In your quest to build a successful business, feeling overwhelmed and being unable to focus on long-term goals is common.
