What keeps you up at night? Is lack of sales a problem? Are customer service issues and bad reviews causing headaches?  Do you feel like it takes too much time and effort to get daily administrative tasks done?

If so, you are not alone. Small businesses all over face challenges.  But it’s possible that while you may see problems all around you, you may be deluding yourself.

The real problems with your business may not be what you think they are.
