YOUR Small Business Success!

Ready for this? YOUR passion for what you do, may be the one thing that’s holding YOUR Small Business’s Success from being attained. Yes, you read this correctly. Passion is good for Small Business Owners (SBOs), but there’s a threshold as to how much is helpful versus harmful!

Where are you in YOUR Passion Spectrum for Small Business Success?

Harm: It distracts you from business generating activities

Help: You learn oodles about YOUR Expertise
Harm: Your not serving customers

Help: You want to help everyone
Harm: You don’t generate your worth in the marketplace

Harm: You can’t appropriately invest in business growth tools


Now, go through each point of YOUR Passion Spectrum for Small Business Success. Give yourself a score, between 0 -10, for both Help and Harm. Take a moment to do it now.

Did your score reflect YOUR Passion is both helpful and harmful to YOUR Business’s Success? Most likely, the answer is yes. Don’t worry, the answer should be yes because all SBOs should allow their passion to be alive – it inspires! Quite honestly, it helps you survive the really challenging days, doesn’t it?
