What’s the biggest barrier to small business growth? Is it your small business marketing or something else?
Yesterday I made a couple of phone calls to virtual assistants about a joint venture business idea of mine. Each week I get emails from small business owners needing help with their web site copywriting, web site design website marketing, managing their ezine, email broadcasts, providing customer suppport, making sales calls and a host of other tasks.
I’m not set up to outsource all these small business marketing tasks but obviously there is a huge demand and with 30,000 + small business owners on my list I get lots of requests. My idea was simply this: I was thinking of setting up a joint venture with a virtual assistant firm that could handle a ton of business and do all the above tasks.
So what happened when I called a couple of smart virtual assistants I know?
I asked them about their goals and this is where we ran into a stumbling block. The virtual assistants I talked to were thinking of growing their businesses to $60-70,000 per year in revenue. I was thinking instead of helping them build a six hundred thousand to six million dollar a year business.
Set your goals to low and you’ll never be truly successful. Obviously you aren’t going to make millions the first day in with your business but to make it you need to think big, make big plans and then get the help you need to reach them.
Are you goals too small? Are they limiting your success?
You can change this in an instant.
