A Blow Your Horn Publication
The '8 Great' Challenges Every Business FacesNeal Jenson, Managing Director of Qazztek,
1. Integrity. Business has never faced the type of moral challenges that it faces in today’s global economy. Everyone is struggling to be more
successful, to make the next quarterly earnings estimate, to keep their job, to earn a big bonus, or to compete effectively. The temptation to cut
corners, omit information, and do whatever it takes to get ahead occurs every day. Many business employees and executives succumb. Sadly, the
theme becomes highly infectious and soon people actually start to feel like lying a little, or stealing a little, or deceiving others, is just “a part of
business”. These practices erode the trust that needs to exist between employers and employees, between business partners, between executives
and shareholders. Without trust, the business will not be able to compete effectively and it will eventually fail.
2. Cash, Borrowing, and Resource Management. Cash is King! We’ve all heard this maxim and it is more true today than ever before.
A healthy profit may look nice on your financial statements, but if capital expenditures or receivable collections are draining your cash, you won’t
be able to stay in business for long. Too often executives and small business owners fail to focus enough on cash flow generation. In order to head
off this problem, businesses must either be adequately capitalized and must shore up cash reserves to meet all obligations as they are needed and
to handle downturns and emergencies that may arise. Cash management becomes even more important during recessionary times when cash is
flowing more slowly into the business and creditors are less lenient in extending time to pay. For small businesses, handling business accounting
and taxes may be within the capabilities of the business owners, but professional help is usually a good idea. The complexity of a business’ books go
up with each client and employee, so getting assistance with managing cash and the bookkeeping can allow you to excel when others are calling it
quits. Cash flow challenges are exacerbated by the lending climate, particularly for small businesses. Bankers are unlikely to be more liberal in
their lending policies any time soon.
3. Increased selection and competition. It’s never been easier to start a business. Gone are the days when it took weeks, months, and a myriad
of forms to get your business started. Now if you can buy a domain name and register your business online, you’re in business. However, staying in
business is a much more complicated matter. While business expertise was once an expensive and time consuming endeavor, you can now find
experts online for many questions that you might encounter. There is help to starting an online store, for example, for getting business cards and
marketing materials – all at a very reasonable cost. The ease of starting a business creates a much broader level of competition. You might find
different business competing for each product you sell and new business that focus on a single item and spend all their time and focus on being the
very best at just one thing. This increase in overall selection and more focused completion will make it more difficult for businesses of all sizes to
retain customers who can change their suppliers with the click of a mouse. It’s a battle of perception, focus, and marketing. Business owners who
master these elements and provide a great customer experience will win the sale.
4. Marketing and Customer Loyalty. Along the same lines as increased selection and competition is the challenge to market to potential
customers effectively and retain your existing customers. Smartphone’s, social media, texting, email, twitter and other communication channels
are making it easy for businesses and individuals to get their messages out. Figuring out the right marketing channels is key for businesses to be
successful in the future. Where are your customers and how do you best reach them and what is the right messaging? Once you get a new
customer, how do you keep these customers when they are constantly barraged by competitors of all types, sizes, and locations, trying to convince
them that they can do it better or provide it cheaper? Identifying what your customers want and doing a better job of giving it to them will make
all the difference in your company’s future. The conservative spending climate is also causing a shrinking customer base. Consumers are still
quite conservative with their pocketbooks, and as a result, organic growth from current and new customers is not growing as quickly as businesses

  • 14. A Blow Your Horn Publication The '8 Great' Challenges Every Business FacesNeal Jenson, Managing Director of Qazztek, 1. Integrity. Business has never faced the type of moral challenges that it faces in today’s global economy. Everyone is struggling to be more successful, to make the next quarterly earnings estimate, to keep their job, to earn a big bonus, or to compete effectively. The temptation to cut corners, omit information, and do whatever it takes to get ahead occurs every day. Many business employees and executives succumb. Sadly, the theme becomes highly infectious and soon people actually start to feel like lying a little, or stealing a little, or deceiving others, is just “a part of business”. These practices erode the trust that needs to exist between employers and employees, between business partners, between executives and shareholders. Without trust, the business will not be able to compete effectively and it will eventually fail. 2. Cash, Borrowing, and Resource Management. Cash is King! We’ve all heard this maxim and it is more true today than ever before. A healthy profit may look nice on your financial statements, but if capital expenditures or receivable collections are draining your cash, you won’t be able to stay in business for long. Too often executives and small business owners fail to focus enough on cash flow generation. In order to head off this problem, businesses must either be adequately capitalized and must shore up cash reserves to meet all obligations as they are needed and to handle downturns and emergencies that may arise. Cash management becomes even more important during recessionary times when cash is flowing more slowly into the business and creditors are less lenient in extending time to pay. For small businesses, handling business accounting and taxes may be within the capabilities of the business owners, but professional help is usually a good idea. The complexity of a business’ books go up with each client and employee, so getting assistance with managing cash and the bookkeeping can allow you to excel when others are calling it quits. Cash flow challenges are exacerbated by the lending climate, particularly for small businesses. Bankers are unlikely to be more liberal in their lending policies any time soon. 3. Increased selection and competition. It’s never been easier to start a business. Gone are the days when it took weeks, months, and a myriad of forms to get your business started. Now if you can buy a domain name and register your business online, you’re in business. However, staying in business is a much more complicated matter. While business expertise was once an expensive and time consuming endeavor, you can now find experts online for many questions that you might encounter. There is help to starting an online store, for example, for getting business cards and marketing materials – all at a very reasonable cost. The ease of starting a business creates a much broader level of competition. You might find different business competing for each product you sell and new business that focus on a single item and spend all their time and focus on being the very best at just one thing. This increase in overall selection and more focused completion will make it more difficult for businesses of all sizes to retain customers who can change their suppliers with the click of a mouse. It’s a battle of perception, focus, and marketing. Business owners who master these elements and provide a great customer experience will win the sale. 4. Marketing and Customer Loyalty. Along the same lines as increased selection and competition is the challenge to market to potential customers effectively and retain your existing customers. Smartphone’s, social media, texting, email, twitter and other communication channels are making it easy for businesses and individuals to get their messages out. Figuring out the right marketing channels is key for businesses to be successful in the future. Where are your customers and how do you best reach them and what is the right messaging? Once you get a new customer, how do you keep these customers when they are constantly barraged by competitors of all types, sizes, and locations, trying to convince them that they can do it better or provide it cheaper? Identifying what your customers want and doing a better job of giving it to them will make all the difference in your company’s future. The conservative spending climate is also causing a shrinking customer base. Consumers are still quite conservative with their pocketbooks, and as a result, organic growth from current and new customers is not growing as quickly as businesses
