Most small businesses survive for many years, a fate worse than failure.
This is not what we typically hear. Generally we hear that 80% or 90% of businesses fail. Most in the first year.
But it isn’t true. Most businesses survive. Most entrepreneurs keep their businesses going for a long time. The problem is not survival.
Survival can be a fate worse than failure
Business failure seems bad. But business survival can be even worse.
In our experience most entrepreneurs are scratching out a living. They work hard at marketing, sales, business building and making their business work. These entrepreneurs survive, but they aren’t thriving. All of the studies about business survival miss the point: the question is not whether or not your business exists after 2 years or 5 years.
The question is whether you can have confidence in your business, whether you can take a vacation, whether you get the lifestyle you want
This is thriving.
We don’t want entrepreneurs to survive. That is a very low bar.
We are creating a world in which entrepreneurs thrive. We imagine a world in which your business works for you, where you earn the money you want, live the lifestyle you want and accomplish your vision for yourself and your business.
Why most businesses don’t thrive.
You are good at what you do. You know that what you do has value.
But being good at something does not automatically translate to having an effective business. Starting a business involves a whole different set of skills. You may be great at what you do but, are you great at running a business?
For almost everybody the answer is no. And this can leave entrepreneurs feeling:
We get it! We’ve been there!
The good news is that starting a business is a well defined process: follow the steps and you will thrive.
