How does an entrepreneur with the greatest idea, fail in business?


Sometimes businesses just fail. It's a harsh reality, but it happens more often than not. The trick to preventing your business from failing is to understand why so many others do.

In most scenarios, it's not just one thing; there are almost always numerous reasons why businesses fail to become successful, or suddenly fail after a promising start. An entrepreneur could have the greatest idea in the world, but if he or she fails to properly follow the proper steps to turning that idea into a successful business, then it's all for naught.

Here are a few of the most common reasons why businesses fail:

“Where performance is measured, performance improves. Where performance is measured and reported, performance improves dramatically. Where performance is measured and reported publicly, performance improves exponentially.” ~ Clate Mask, CEO & Co-Founder of Infusionsoft

Understanding these reasons for failure is a great method of concentrating on how you can make your business a success. Contact us today at Viral Solutions for more information on how you can avoid failing with your company, and instead achieve the goals you established at its outset.

About Thomas von Ahn

With more than 30 years of experience in B2B sales across various industries, Thomas has unique insight into both the offline and online sales sphere. It was during his time in the trenches that Thomas noticed a recurring theme: Though business owners are knowledgeable about their craft or trade, they often struggle to market and sell to their prospects. This realization is what prompted Thomas and his now business partner, Christine, to bring Viral Solutions to life. Since starting the company, Thomas has been able to assist countless business owners in developing a solid marketing plan based upon sound marketing strategy, then assigning the marketing tactics to a team of talented employees, and, finally, watching those actions unfold—his true passion.

Though Viral Solutions is on Thomas’ mind 24/7, he does occasionally take a break to cheer on the Green Bay Packers and enjoy his adopted home of Wisconsin. Much of his family also works at Viral Solutions, and this closeness with family and employees is the cornerstone of the Viral Solutions culture.
