You left the day job and struck out on your own.
You dared to dream and from the outside the idea looked good. You talked it over with friends and family and they gave you the thumbs up. It made total sense.
At the time….
The business plan was written and that all important brand name was chosen over a few drinks with friends. All good. Now your 2 years in and the cash flow isn’t what you expected. In fact it is less than what you were earning before. It’s just one big struggle.
You’re not alone.
But what can you do? From where you sit it just looks like an endurance race with no joy or end in site.
An inside look
One of the best ways to plan and grow your business is to get an inside look at what other business owners are doing. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lifestyle biz blogger, run an ecommerce website or a traditional type of business. Business is still business.
What strategies are they using to get their message out there?
What goals do they have in place for the next year?
That sort of information is normally hard to come by, but this State of Small Business Report, by my friend Josh Turner has got it all. This industry study, drawn from the survey results of over 1,200 small business owners, can give you a real understanding of the state of small businesses today, and what they’ve got planned for 2016.
The result is an in-depth, eye-opening report, which you can get for free right now:

Fortunately, the data also shows the path to avoiding the pitfalls that many businesses encounter. Josh’s report will reveal how you can use this data to your advantage – go take a look now
