New businesses are springing up every day across the country. Many people start a business to make money. Unfortunately, many small businesses fail within the first year or two. Here are 10 reasons why small businesses fail and owners should watch for.
- Lack of capital
- You don't have a website
- Not setting clear goals
- Not finding a product niche
- Targeting the wrong audience
- Failing to plan or poor planning
- Not doing market research

A business takes time. Before starting a business, you should do market research on your idea. You should take small steps toward getting your business off the ground by developing your action plan. If something doesn't work the way you expect, try something else. What works for someone else might not work for you. Learn from your mistakes. When you believe in yourself and your goals, you will be more successful.
