These past few years have created a culture of defeat or hopelessness in many small business owners. Today the news media still tells a terrible story about the economy and the world situation. This causes some small businesses to just hold tight and wait for the “good times” to come back.
Focus groups made up of small business owners often overflow with reasons as to why they can’t improve their current position. Some clients require an in-depth study of where they came from, where they are now, and where their potential for growth is.
It is necessary to spend a lot of time looking into the core of a company regardless of their current position in their industry, before forward steps can be taken.
A positive attitude and a belief system that stresses the “yes I can” has to be re-installed and nurtured.
The required, both mental and physical, “turnaround” needs a commitment to a change of “lifestyle” not only in the business environment but sometimes in the family environment. Change is difficult and in a small business the family is a critical component necessary to succeed in this endeavor.
In these critical business situations a small business owner has to reach out for support, direction and firm accountability.
