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
