Frustrations of Small Business Owners
• I can’t leave the office for a minute without my cell phone ringing—Come Back! Boss, we have a problem.
• Why do I have to do everything myself, my employees just can’t seem to do anything right?
• Why is it so hard to find good people? My employees can’t seem to remember anything!
