So, when are you going to do it?
If not now, then when?
I have worked with hundreds of small business owners as an accountant and over the last 20 years as a coach and business development consultant. Some have struggled to make wages and others have grown successful businesses and consistently made profits in the hundreds of thousands.
There are lots of reasons that I could point to as why some are successful and others struggle, but if I had to point to one consistent reason it would be speed of decision making. Successful business owners don’t wait for perfect circumstances or for the stars to align, the make fast decisions and get on with it. They aren’t always right, but they understand that a fast wrong decision is often better than a slow correct decision.
They also understand that:
