Turnaround Expert | Speaker| Author

I have worked with 150 companies in 45 different industries, the number one reason businesses fail – they wait too long to make meaningful change.

Owners, managers, board of directors and even creditors all avoid addressing real issues. In general, people don’t want to be confrontational. They don’t want to “step on toes,” “speak out of line,” “hurt feelings.” They just want to be “part of the team.”  This is a nice environment to work in but it’s also an environment where small problems will be glossed over. Little problems begin to accumulate. Eventually, they become big problems.

How much time do you have before your big problems put you out of business? It all depends on how much cash your business is generating, how much credit you can borrow against your assets . . . and, mostly, how much patience your creditors are willing to extend to you.
