Six Challenges Facing Business Owners

After spending the past few weeks chatting with small business owners in Essex, it becomes apparent that they all face similar challenges on a daily basis.

As expected, they are always poor. And the owners or CEOs of these companies always feel they should be “useful” in all aspects of their business. But, as I am told, they may know everything about your business, but sometimes they need the support and guidance of professionals to ensure their business grows and grows profitably.

Some of the challenges they face include:


Clients are the focus of every transaction. With no clients and no income, business becomes a good idea. One of their problems is how to attract, retain, and promote their customers.

For me, the key to winning a new business and ensuring customer retention is providing a great product or service and adding a great customer experience. He needs to develop a system to ensure that client grows and raises the existing client base.


Many entrepreneurs are not sales professionals and need critical advice when developing a business position, business plan, or campaign, or thinking about how they want to promote their business.

The challenge is to allow the company to share its story which will grow the company and build connections with clients. Bring in an experienced client working in the field, either internally or as a consultant, to help develop this strategy that can allow the business owner to focus on their core business.

Time clock

For many business owners, there are not enough hours during the day. All holders are stuffed for a while. It means spending more time than usual saying no and focusing on what’s important to business success.

This is where an entrepreneur often seeks outside advice from a business advisor or consultant to focus on what is most important in business development.

Money management

Obtaining sound financial advice from a consultant takes time to evaluate business performance, check debtors’ progress, evaluate customer value propositions, and implement an effective financial plan that reduces the risk of business failure. Fall into financial trouble.


Business planning is an idea for some of the business clients I have spoken to. They improvise. Annual planning should begin four months before the end of the fiscal year with a budget that includes each client/potential customer, growth opportunity, business development plan, and baseline assessment of who wants the service. Customer/customer information, marketing, and business development creating a better customer experience and delivering more sustainable value.

Successful entrepreneurs start businesses because they know how to build a culture of giving.


Few business owners run the entire company, so it’s important to simplify the process. This is where outside or professional support can be very helpful.


Business ownership is not for the faint of heart – it takes grit, determination, and a thick skin to succeed. Accepting the challenge brings pride and accomplishment. Consider these six challenges if you want to start your own business. With hard work and a positive attitude, you can overcome anything that stands in your way.
