Running a Small Business

Any small business owner will tell you that starting and running your own business is no easy task. During the startup stage, business owners end up wearing many hats (marketing, accounting, web design, sales, customer service, etc.) due to lack of resources, money, time or all of the above. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed trying to do it all yourself, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

According to a recent eVoice SMB Survey, 90% of small business owners fulfill 3 or more roles regularly, with 44% of small business owners fulfilling at least 5 different employee roles. Some of the most challenging aspects of balancing a small business are juggling multiple roles, not enough time to get things done and trouble making a profit.

Fortunately, the small business owner has help. These days there is little that an entrepreneur can’t learn from a search engine query, article, video, ebook or blog post. The web is a nearly infinite resource of information, recommendations and tips—and with the right combination of automation tools, helpful advice and plenty of elbow grease, any entrepreneur can turn a fledgling startup into a successful small business.
