Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started a Business
My name is Darlene Ziebell. Early in my career I bought my first business. Everyone I had access to made it sound easy. I recently read that 85% of all businesses fail in their early startup phase. I learned a lot through my failures and mistakes. Through these challenges, I’ve been able to make 4 of my businesses experience tremendous customer growth in a short period of time. However, that growth came with many unexpected challenges; challenges that most experienced business owners won’t talk about. From funding a startup through exiting your business, I’ve been there. And there are many stages in between when operating a business: Launch, Growth, Maturity and Decline. I’ve made those stages work.
Let me share these experiences and work with you to guide your business to its greatest potential. I’m willing to share my successes as well as any mistakes to help you avoid the challenges I was exposed to. Wherever you are in your business lifecycle, I’m sure I can guide you. Click on the service below that best describes where you need the most help with your business today. If you are not sure where to start, consider signing up for my webinar called “Success Through Failure.” In this webinar I discuss the various phases of business where owners should direct their attention to achieve their greatest success.
