Feb 21: The 12 Enemies of Small Business Success and How to Defeat Them | SCORE

Everybody going into business knows the odds are sometimes stacked against them. Every day they must face 12 “enemies” that conspire to bring them down. As the best defense is a good offense, here’s how you develop strategies for defeating these “enemies” before they get to you.

You will learn:

  • How to identify and deal with your competitors.
  • Coping strategies for creditors, copycats, crooks and other “thieves.”
  • What to do when the people you count on most to build your business go over to the “dark side.”
  • That sometimes your most challenging “enemy” is closer to home than you think.

Prior to the Workshop:

Make a list of the people and institutions you deal with that give you the most “agita,” and be prepared to discuss what you are currently doing to prevent them from stealing your success.
