I meet with a lot of small business owners. When I say small I mean as small as 1 employee to around 30 employees. Larger yes, but my focus here is on the smaller small businesses. As you can imagine, the diversity of that range, coupled with the differences in industry, can be interesting in the best of terms. A common theme among them all is their challenge with getting things done. As they grow, people challenges become part of the mix along with the more common issues of marketing/sales, production/production management, waste management/team building, and customer service/customer retention.
