The failure rate for small businesses is such that only 4% will survive to reach their tenth birthday. Most of the businesses that survive and are eventually sold fetch a price well below what could have been achieved with a little planning and less work. Small Business Growth specialist Stuart Lockley has authored a report, titled â6 Keys to Double the Value of Your Businessâ? in order to help with the problems all small and medium sized businesses face in growing.
The report is available free to anyone who registers at Lockleyâs web site: http://www.stuartlockley.com. Lockley points out how working harder may not be the best option and how small changes can make a huge difference.
Says Lockley âMany business owners concentrate on working long hours in their business and as a result create a business that depends upon them. Few business owners realise that creating a business that works without them will leave time to concentrate on marketing, provide a better quality of life and leave the owner wealthier.â?
