Working on your business vs working in your business

In Australia over 97% businesses are small to medium businesses. Roughly half go out of business in the first five years!

There is little reason to expect the world wide trends to be any different.

Its easy to start a business. All it takes is an idea, something to annoy you in your existing job, a market downturn, a moment of entrepreneurial valour, a touch of envy when you see someone making a killing at something.

One reason is that business owners lose sight of the importance of working ON your business and not in it.

It is strengthening the foundation upon which your business will sit.
