Effective leadership in small business
“Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.” – Richard Branson
Do you want to start or boost your small business in 2021 as a more effective leader? Is the deteriorating economy getting in the way of your plans?
Since the 2020 pandemic, we have seen it all – changes, wins, losses, failures, successes (quite a few as shocking as that sounds), transformations, and struggles.
Do you associate the unforgettable year that was with all things tragic, dreadful, and unfortunate? Do you feel as though you are standing on a burning platform with no way out? Or maybe you are disheartened about not having all that you dearly desired.
But do allow us this moment to offer a new take on this.
A global crisis, its after-effects, and the subsequent changes we have witnessed might be the last possible thing you need right now, but it can also –
- Be your biggest gift
- Offer new opportunities and lead you to a better life
- Give you something better than you originally wanted
- Push you to soldier on, go ahead and keep looking forward
… and at the same time help you slow down, savor every moment in life, and find your true calling.
Change often forces you to go after your dreams.
Dreams as small as learning a new musical instrument, and as big as finally acting on that business idea you have had for years.
To quote the apt Chinese proverb, “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago and the second-best time is today.”
The past year has tested not only our resilience but also our capabilities as a business owner and an effective leader.
The role of an effective leader in the success or failure of every small business
DID YOU KNOW: According to a 2020 research, over 80 failed startups were interviewed to understand the top reasons why startups actually fail. It was found that more than 9 out of 10 startups fail. The common reasons for startup failure include a lack of product-market fit (34%), marketing problems (22%), team problems (18%), finance problems (16%), followed by tech issues (6%), operations and legal problems (2%).

But what do all of these aspects actually point to? Poor leadership.
Now, there’s a lot at stake in your amazing and valuable business. If you do want to witness it take off and grow, YOU need to be an effective leader.
Everything small business owners need to know about our Startup Booster Program
LIMITING BELIEFS: What if I fail? I want to accomplish my goals, but I just don’t know how and where to begin! How do I know if I am taking the right steps towards success?
Have you said this to yourself (or out aloud) lately?
For many first-time or new small business owners and effective leaders, no matter what industry you are in, the journey might seem overwhelming and scary on some days.
While it is fine to be bogged down by limiting beliefs now and then, your success depends on your mindset, actions, and perseverance – so what are you going to do about it?
Our Startup Booster Program carried out with our LEA methodology, reflects our mission and motto –
LEARN to handle critical decision making, interaction with key players, and to stay grounded
EMPOWER with courage, focus, and action

This program is designed to overhaul your journey in the small business world from where you are to where you want to be, learn how to navigate newly acquired skill sets, find your own style and confidence, to lead from the truth and strength, and to achieve the required results – as a small business owner and an effective leader.
Why the Startup Booster Program could be just what you need to propel your small business
All bad news aside here’s the bright side to uplift your spirit –
