With 93.1% of small businesses earning annual revenues of less than $250k and 57.1% with revenues of less than $25k, it pays to understand why small businesses are failing. Obviously, every business is unique, but there are some common causes for disaster.

On this week’s episode, Grant discusses the five reasons (below) that businesses are flopping and how to avoid this pitfall:

Small Business Blunders

1) No one knows who you are
2) You are too small
3) Don’t grow fast enough
4) Don’t invest enough money
5) Don’t make money

Grant also goes one-on-one with callers and teaches them about the importance of acting like a business owner.

Finally, Grant invites viewers to sign-up for the Kick Start Your Small Business Interactive Webinar with Grant Cardone & Fran Tarkenton

Awesome show Grant! I just discovered you a month ago on Meerkat. I love your energy and enthusiasm. I help my clients amplify their brands on social media. I save them time so they can focus on the nuts and bolts of their business, spend more time with their family and have a life!

Hey Uncle Grant, it's your brother Leku.

How can I position myself to business owners to look at my tool, because  it is proven to give them free money, and also get me a portion of what I help them earn.

@Leku have you tried cold calling... Can get free list of all businesses in country at your local library and hit them up.. Use GC millions on the phone or go straight to the biz and talk eye ball to eye ball so you can walk out with a check in hand!

@cashflow_queen @Leku Thanks cashflow_queenl. I know you're busy, so I'll be brief. As I mentioned
in my post, I have a unique marketing strategy that can quickly increase your bottom line profits by
30% or more. If I could schedule a few minutes of your time to give you the details on how this
strategy works, I promise you won't be disappointed. You can email me at 10xlifestyle@gmail.com so we can discuss further.
