In 2012, I had just over 1200 people subscribe to my email list. Just under 100 people took the time to respond to my questions. For those of you that did, thank you.

As a small business blog, understanding what small business owners are struggling with in their business helps me to help you…..and for you to help yourself. Understand and defining your struggles is the first step to overcoming them.

I think most small business owners go through similar struggles, regardless of industry. It can be isolating for a business owner when things aren't going as planned, you don't have a group of co-workers to brighten you up. Thanks for the comments!
