SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS: NEVER PROMISED A ROSE GARDEN FOR THEIR GOALS

Facing off the Big DogMany small businesses are thought of as insignificant, powerless and unlikely to attain success when compared to their corporate big brothers.

It seems to just be a matter of fact; namely, that small business owners are the miniature poodles compared to the mastiffs of the corporate world.

They are lacking in financing, resources, labor, and distribution power when compared to larger businesses.

What is left for them but to work much harder and for longer hours. Indeed, this is one of the major complaints and stressors communicated by small business owners.

Of course, there are other ways that underdogs can beat the opposition.

Fun Story: Bruce Lee’s 1-inch punch (his fist was one inch away from the unfortunate target) which sent grown men flying through the air was not about muscles. It was about timing and neuroplasticity.  From practicing, he had developed more white matter in a portion of his brain which allowed for greater connectivity and control
