9 Reasons Why Your Business Isn’t Successful

Last year I wrote an article on my blog on why some peoples businesses weren’t successful. I thought it was too direct but to my surprise it end up getting a decent amount of views.

As I’ve mentioned before, social media makes starting a business look easy. And I’ve seen people who believed the hype then became frustrated when things didn’t work out.

Two things I’ll share with you:

  1. Just because you sell a product, launch a website, that doesn’t mean people are going to automatically buy from you.
  2. Trendy articles about specific demographics having success should not be your sole motivation for starting a business.

I pride myself in being a realist. It’s helped me in many areas of life and business. My goal is to help others win before they fail.

Sincerely,

“Wages aren’t keeping up with inflation, so the only way for most employees to either get a step up in salaries is either to find a new firm or have one foot out the door,” Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James, told Barron’s.

On Wednesday, the careers website Glassdoor released its annual 50 Best Jobs in America for 2022. With so many workers on the move as we enter Year 3 of the pandemic, it makes particularly timely reading.

Once again, tech workers came out on top. Enterprise architects were No. 1 on Glassdoor’s list. They have a median base salary of $144,997 a year, 14,021 job openings and a satisfaction rating of 4.1 out of 5.0, according to the report.
