Two in five expect 2014 revenues to outpace those from last year. Of those expecting to beat 2013 revenues, half expect to do so by 10 percent or more. There are still major challenges, however, including slow economic growth nationwide and struggling local economies. About 50 percent of small business owners cited these as their top concerns. Only 11 percent said health care reform was a major concern. Not having enough cash for hiring or expansion (17 percent), and not being able to find qualified candidates (13 percent) for jobs, were also listed. More on the Small Business Landscape 77% of small business owners surveyed expect to be profitable in the second half of 2014. This is up from the 62 percent who said they were profitable in the first half.
