Running a business in California is painful, but rewarding. How can you clear your desk of paperwork and insurance jargon and get back to growing your business? See if you can relate to the 4 Pain Points for a Small Business Owner below.

1. Employee turnover is too high 

To be successful, not only do you have to hire great people, you also have to keep them around. How do you maintain quality staff? Unfortunately, many small businesses cite employee management as a top issue. Retaining your best people requires good leadership skills, yes, but it also involves running a tight and efficient ship.

2. Cash flow

Maintaining cash flow can be tricky, especially when you are just starting out. Sixty-nine percent of businesses surveyed reported that cash flow was their number one most pressing issue – that’s a lot! Be realistic with your revenue forecasting. Don’t get behind on bills. Create a cash flow budget. Don’t hesitate to reach out to a team of professionals who can aid in these tasks so you don’t have to do it alone – outsourcing has many benefits!

3. Time management

How many times a day do you say, “I don’t have enough time”? Lack of time is a common problem that every small business owner has to deal with. To complicate matters, small business owners face the challenges of trying to maximize efficiency, reduce costs and save money for their business. That’s no small task when time is so tight.

4. How to streamline and grow

For small businesses, growth often comes with growing pains. Many times, you have to make the choice between working long hours (potentially asking your staff to do the same) or finding ways to cut corners. Neither is a great solution and ultimately, you will have to find a way to grow your business without hurting your business.
