Business Development for the Entrepreneur
Starting a new business can be an extremely overwhelming experience.
At Sampson & Associates we understand that there is truly no such thing as a
“Business Template”. We recognize that each business and entrepreneur is
unique and we pride ourselves on being able to accommodate and to cater to
each and every client.
Did you know that the failure rate for new businesses is approximately 70% - 80% in the first year and only about half of those who survive the first year will remain in business within the next five years? This distressing data, as reported by Dunn & Bradstreet, leaves a survival rate of less than 15% after five years! This grim reality could be substantially avoided as in many cases the route to failure was unwittingly predetermined.
Don’t Become a Statistic
At Sampson & Associates we understand the reasons why the failure rate for new businesses is so high. It therefore becomes our mandate to ensure that our clients receive the necessary tools and information to establish strong foundations to not only survive, but to thrive in today’s business climate.
Every aspiring entrepreneur has both strengths and weaknesses which must be recognized up-front. To assume that there are no weaknesses is one of the key formulas for disaster. Many of our clients have never taken this leap before and, therefore, we must make them aware of two basic principles:
- Take a short cut and you are sure to get lost…
- Miss a step and you will likely fall…
Know the Rules
Success or Failure is a choice.
If you don’t know the necessary things “To Do” they will not get done. Choice!
At Sampson & Associates we know the rules. It is our responsibility to guide and help you implement these rules to ensure that you dynamically increase your chances for success while avoiding the pitfalls as a result of lack of knowledge.
