SandBlasting Reality: 4D Life Skills for Evolving Business Owners

Up Your Odds of Business Success

A SandBlasting RealityToolkit for Actual and Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Owning your own business is a dream nearly everyone has, but the odds are against your success. About half of all employer establishments survive at least 5 years, and only a third survive 10 years or more, according to statistics published by the Small Business Administration.

Why such a high failure rate? Money is always at the core, and money problems are usually related to lack of sales, but the real reasons are far more obscure than that. Most people who start a new business lack the knowledge, talents, attitudes, insight and confidence needed to build and run a successful business, which leads to:

  • Muddy vision or an inability to see the bigger picture
  • Lack of resources (or the wrong resources)
  • Ineffective communication with customers, employees or vendors
  • Inadequate support systems or high employee turnover
  • Lack of self-awareness, introspection or critical thinking skills
  • Inability to manage the flow of money

These are all easily solvable problems once you have the right know-how, skills and tools to launch and run a successful small business.
