Business success and business failure

Business success is characterized by expansion of your business without other more investments from your personal cash box into your business.It is also characterized by increased profits.

Business failure is where a business or company ceases operations due to a continued encounter of losses.

Causes of business failure

Poor financial management

A business is not just a matter of human resource management.Most entrepreneurs who are unable to find what their business need,at most do not succeed .Making uncalculated risks is also part of poor financial management.Others include withdrawing money from your business for your personal use.

Bad customer relations

This involves talking recklessly to your clients and offering commodities which aren't in demand on bulk.This discourages customers from coming back to buy your product which leads to business failure.

Inadequate capital

Capital is the total amount of money brought into the business by the proprietor.Inadequate capital leads to inability to attract customers since a low capital business may not be able to afford advertising costs.

Poor business location

Locating your business where there is no space for expansion,locating a business far away from the raw materials,locating your business where there is little market may lead to termination of your business.This is due to increased costs of transportation or even perishability of your products,suppose your products are perishable.

Lacking a business plan
