If you are a small business owner; what is your biggest challenge in growing your business?

I am a Business Coach and always want to make sure I have my pulse on what people are needing so that I provide the best service. Is getting more clients, making more money, or something else the hardest thing you have to deal with? How important is growing your business to you? I think by knowing this Business Coaches can provide a greater service to you and help support you in your goals of acheiving success.

Growth is vital to any business. Who can depend on the same customers and make a living? New clients help create cashflow and make you learn more about what you do.
My challenge is time management and learning networking for referrals. Self promotion isn’t easy if you don’t have the skills yet.
For Biz Coaching…why don’t you create a newsletter that can be shared with tips or a blog, be a resource & establish yourself as an professional.
Good luck.

    Competition. I suppose it depends on the industry you are in, but our biggest challenge has been competition. A large chain store in our area starting offering the same services that we do – and with thier name brand, marketing power and so on – it’s just hard to grow.References :

    Time, finding employees that are capable of what my business needs and 3 1/2 years after starting my business I am fighting to keep myself motivated. I find that I am keeping my business from growing because I do not want to devote any more time to it than I already do. I pass by opportunity after opportunity to keep the status quo.References :
