What are the biggest challenges today for business owners (in your experience):

A major challenge for entrepreneurial business owners is Predictable Growth.  Based on our research, 80% of small to mid-sized company leaders are not maximizing the potential of their businesses.  Many have hit an artificial ceiling primarily based on an increase in business complexity and basic clarity on how to take the next step.  We have also found that entrepreneurial business owners that get a handle on what it takes to reach next level success can quickly accelerate the growth of their businesses.

Best advice for business owners:

Understand your “Why”, your personal vision, and build it into your business’ targets and goals.  Our research shows that 7 out of 10 small to mid-sized entrepreneurial business owners do not consider their personal goals and objectives when scaling their businesses.  In effect, they undervalue themselves significantly.  As a business owner or leader, it is imperative to include your personal vision when planning the future of your business. a St. Louis, MO. company works with small to mid-sized businesses to help them achieve accelerated growth.  Through the use of a proprietary set of tools, has helped cross industry companies maximize their absolute potential.
