I love small businesses. I love and respect the energy, passion and pizzazz that small business owners and early stage startup founders have. It’s by far one of the main reasons I chose to work with start-ups and small businesses.
However, more often than I’d like, I’d meet some small business owners that are sheepish when we start talking about traction or growth. Not because there isn’t any, but because it’s not the hockey stick that is touted and celebrated in the press.
