Challenges

A recent article, Four Business Challenges All Entrepreneurs Face by Kara Perez says that running your own business involves a lot of challenges.  Nevertheless, you’re not alone–all business owners face the same problems and challenges as you are.

Here are four common business challenges entrepreneurs face.

  1. Questioning one’s ability

Questioning one’s ability or self doubt is one of the most common challenges that entrepreneurs face. It’s very tempting to gauge and compare yourself against someone else, but when you always compare yourself to others you can get stuck in circles of self doubt. The best way to deal with self-doubt is to share your fears and ask for support when you need it. Self doubt is common, but it can be overcome.

  1. Marketing

Encouraging people to buy your product or service is more challenging than ever, that means there’s a lot of competition. To be able to compete with other brands, you can book a meeting room and discuss with your sales team marketing strategies/tactics to reach new consumers and keep old customers satisfied.  

  1. Consistent Output

Being consistent can be difficult, particularly in the early stage of your business. But you’re not alone. For instance, Daymond John, founder of FUBU struggled with being able to afford and sell product on a consistent basis in the early 1990’s due to cash flow problems, but now FUBU has earned more than six billion dollars in sales.

  1. Growth

Converting your idea into a recognizable brand that generates real money is pretty hard. Growth can be a challenge, but there’s always a way to move forward. For instance, James Dyson, founder of Dyson vacuums, made more than 5,000 prototypes before he created one that worked. Keep going and accelerate when everyone gets discouraged.  Remember, growth comes over time.
