You’ve heard it before — lack of funding, poor team management, broken business models and failed marketing campaigns. There are numerous reasons small businesses fail and it’s not for the faint of heart.

“You have about a 50% chance of making it [for] five years,” explains Bill Flynn. As time goes on, that percentage continues to drop. “Those are just the [businesses] that died. There is a very large percentage of [businesses] that didn’t die who are just struggling every single day.” Your small business doesn’t have to be in that number.
