There is no doubt that owning a small business, especially in the current economy, is one of the most difficult things one can do. They face constant competition from larger corporate chains that can offer bigger discounts, a wider selection of products, and afford prime locations for their stores to attract as much business as possible. Years ago I was a barista at a coffee shop that was owned by a woman with an MBA, who had a great business plan and determination, but with a Starbucks down the street and the location at the back of a strip mall, she had to close her doors without even being open for a year. It was sad, but unfortunately a pretty typical story. With seemingly all the right things in place, her business was still no match for her local competitors. One area that she failed to invest money or time in was advertising. With the exception of a street sign that bore an area pointing towards the coffee shop, she did not get the word out that her business even existed, which I believe was a major contributing factor to its subsequent closing.
