Do you know the 3 things that will happen to every business during a recession?

1. Some businesses will die.
2. Some businesses will survive.
3. Some businesses will prosper.

There are some new businesses that were barely making it when the economy was doing well. They were not prepared for a sudden economic change and don’t have much experience.

The sudden downswing in the economy could be the final nail in their coffin.

There are other businesses that have been around for awhile – maybe many years- but they don’t know methods to help most business withstand a recession.

Some of these businesses could also die during this time. Hopefully this won’t happen to your business.

But there are other businesses that will have a completely different experience during this time.

They will survive through this difficult time and some will even prosper.

  • What will determine why one business dies and one survives?
  • What will determine why one business survives and one prospers?

There is ONE thing that will determine what happens to a business during this time! What is it?

The choices they make.

*A SIMPLE CHOICE to do one thing instead of another could be the reason why some businesses survive during this time.

The problem for most is…

Today I’ll focus on the first thing.

The first thing you need to do is discover the common mistakes that most business make during a recession.

One way you can learn these mistakes is through trial and error. You can try something and see if it works. If it doesn’t you can try something else. (See my previous post on one of the most common mistakes I’ve discovered here.)

It’s risky, because in a recession-like environment small mistakes can some times have deadly consequences for businesses.

A more effective way to discover the common mistakes is to research and find out what the “experts” say are the common fatal mistakes that most businesses make during a recession.

This way you will know from the start what NOT to do.
