Behind every successful new venture is a well-prepared business owner.

Over many years we have observed the characteristics and practices of people who succeed in business as well as the reasons behind why some people have not. We designed our unique Business Readiness Test using real life experience.

Much of the information on the internet and social media focuses solely on “how to” run a business. All while “gurus” propagate urban myths about how easy it is to build businesses and attain success with relatively little effort.

Our approach is very different and is based on our real experience. We’ve observed that business success is as much to do with the owner and his or her mindset as it is with the business idea or the tools used to run the business.

Hidden reasons why businesses struggle or fail.

There are many hidden reasons why businesses struggle or fail. The good news is that many of these can be prevented through proper preparation.

It is clear that some individuals are not well suited to owning a business but, sadly, only find it out when it’s too late. Naturally, this can cause a lot of stress and heartache, not to mention destroying the owner’s precious savings along the way.

Other causes can be the lack of personal preparation and a lack of understanding of the day-to-day realities of operating a business.

Every business idea requires careful evaluation to make sure it can deliver against your aspirations. Sadly, some people start businesses that will never be able to meet expectations.

Of course starting or buying a business or franchise can be a tremendous experience if things go well.

The Business Readiness Test gives you some insight into what it takes to be a successful business owner. It provides links to much more detailed information that can help you decide if owning a business is the right choice for you
