The top reasons small businesses fail

As Seen In...
My mission is to help small businesses bring their business dreams to life. So imagine how I felt when I found these stats on businessinsider.com recently, showing the top reasons small businesses fail:

82% have cashflow problems.
42% find there’s no market need for their products or services.
29% run out of cash.
23% don’t have the right team.
19% are outcompeted.


20% fail in the first year.
34% in the second year.
50% in the fifth year.

Those are some scary stats up there.

But sadly, these are all too common. Most business owners don’t have the knowledge and experience to do the very basic, fundamental things that will future proof their business.

Things like:

  • Validating your offers.
  • Competitor research.
  • Creating a robust business strategy.
  • Income planning.
  • Creating a clear customer roadmap.
  • Creating marketing and sales systems that convert.
  • Creating the right systems to make your business run like clockwork.

THIS is why I run my masterminds. 

To teach the right way to do business. 
With a solid foundation. 
With the right strategy. 
With the right mindset. 
With the right implementation plan. 

And with integrity, authenticity and a big dollop of chutzpah. 

These are the things that reduce those stats up there.

So if those stats scare you… 
If you’re hell-bent on NOT becoming just another statistic… 
If you know your business needs help…
If you know you don’t have all of these things covered…
