According to the SBA(Small Business Administration) U.S, over 50% of small businesses fail in the first five years.
following reasons for small business failure:
1. Lack of experience
2. Insufficient capital (money)
3. Poor location
4. Poor inventory management
5. Over-investment in fixed assets
6. Poor credit arrangements
7. Personal use of business funds
8. Unexpected growth
10. Low sales
These figures aren’t meant to scare you, but to prepare you for the problematic path ahead.
Underestimating the difficulty of starting a business is one of the biggest obstacles entrepreneurs face. However, success can be yours if you are patient, willing to work hard, and take all the necessary steps.
On the upside
It’s true that there are many reasons not to start your own business. But for the right person, the advantages of business ownership far outweigh the risks.
You will be your own boss. Hard work and long hours directly benefit you, rather than increasing profits for someone else. Earning and growth potential are far greater. A new venture is as exciting as it is risky. Running a business provides endless challenge and opportunities for learning.
