Business Bootcamp | Skills That Entrepreneurs Need To Know

Many entrepreneurs need to attend a business bootcamp than many realize. Because there are a lot of knowledge gaps that business owners have when they open the doors to their business.

Even graduates of a business school often do not have all of the information they need. In order to be a successful entrepreneur. And the failure rate for business owners is so high in Canada.

According to industry Canada, the failure rate of small businesses in Canada starts happening in the first year of business ownership. When 15% of all entrepreneurs fail the first year that they open their business.

30% of all small businesses in Canada fail within the second year of operating their business. And the failure rate tops out at 50%, within five years of owning a business.

Not only is the failure rate for entrepreneurs extremely high. In Alberta, half of the entire workforce is employed by small business owners.

Therefore, the high failure rate displaces an extremely large percentage of the workforce. Each is just one of the reasons why Spurrell and Associates have created this business bootcamp to help entrepreneurs succeed.

Industry Canada not only found out what the failure rate for entrepreneurs in Canada was. They also found the most common reasons why these business owners were not successful.

And discovered that the majority of business owners were failing due to three main reasons. What is even more surprising, is that each of these three reasons why business owners are not successful. Are completely avoidable with the right education.

The third most common reason why Canadian entrepreneurs failed in business. And affected 23% of all failed entrepreneurs in this country. Is because they cannot find or keep staff in their business.

And while it is true, the average employee is staying almost half as long as they used to stay with their employers. With the average employee staying approximately five years several years ago. Compared to two point three years the average employee is staying with their employer now.

The second most common reason why entrepreneurs fail in business. And affects 29% of business owners who were not successful. Is because they ran out of money in their business.

Reasons, why entrepreneurs run out of money in their business, is extremely varied. From not generating enough sales, and having out-of-control expenses. To not making the best or most informed financial decisions. That cause them to spend more money than they have.

And the single most common reason why business owners fail in Canada. And affects 42% of all business owners who are not successful. Is because they cannot find enough customers by their products and services.

And whether this is because entrepreneurs marketing is not effective. Or if they did not think of a marketing plan before they open the doors to their business. This cause for businesses to fail than any other single reason.

This is why business owners should come to the business bootcamp. Is because they can learn things that they need to help them avoid these three common obstacles. As well as other information that can help them proactively grow their business as well.
