3 Mistakes Small Business Owners Make

In my experience both in 20+ years in corporate America, and now for the last few years in my own business, I keep seeing three big mistakes that small business owners and independent business professionals make that keep them burned out, feeling unfulfilled, and overwhelmed. These mistakes hold them back and prevent them from achieving the results they always wanted and hoped for.

The truth is that most small business owners have gotten so stuck in the day-in-day-out routine of running their businesses that they have lost sight of what is most important. Of the real purpose and reason they went into business in the first place. And that is really what leads to being burned out, feeling unfulfilled in work or life, and overwhelmed trying to do everything on your own. Believe me, I have made each one of these three mistakes and it took me far too long to turn it around. I’ve seen others give up on their dreams of owning their own business or creating the lifestyle they wanted because they were never able to recognize and correct these mistakes.

I’ll go into more detail about each of the mistakes in future blogs, so stay tuned for more information on these major barriers to success and what to do to fix these problems.  Okay, so here are the three mistakes:


  1. Stuck In Status Quo
  2. Cloudy Vision
  3. Go It Alone Syndrome
