The challenge of leading a small business

In the last 12 years I have encountered hundreds of dynamic, young (at heart) entrepreneurs full of ideas. Their eternal creativity is incredible and I admire their perseverance. However during our numerous conversations I realized that these entrepreneurs not only share a list of common traits, they also share the challenge of leading a small business on a daily basis. I believe that small businesses accomplish more by thinking big, that’s why I created Next Step. I feel small businesses will perform better when they allow themselves to be inspired by larger business models, while at the same time preserving the benefits of being small.
