Performing an honest self-evaluation is a critical step in deciding if you should start a business. Behind any successful venture is typically someone who has taken the time to do the work up front before jumping into business ownership. A self-evaluation is part of the initial work, and requires you to take a close look at what it will take to start and grow your business at all levels—including time, money, and resources.
When talking to most successful business owners, the word growth brings feelings of joy and optimism. But there are two sides to growth, the good and the bad. Practitioners need to understand that ‘good growth’ can bring greater success and increased revenue. ‘Good growth’ occurs when you are prepared for challenges and react in a positive manner to meet and exceed potential obstacles.
