Unlimited liability

Since you are all in all in your business, you have unlimited liability. When you take a loan, you need to keep your personal asset as collateral. In case anything goes wrong, you are responsible for everything. You may lose your asset if you fail to pay your loan back.

Time management

When you do a job, you go to the office and work there for a specific time. But it seems you are on 24/7 when you do your business. You spend too much time in your business that you may not have much time to be with your family. In spite of feeling how important it is to spend quality time with your family, you find it hard to manage your time.


Finance is considered the lifeblood of a business. It may not be possible to run the business with your own money. You have to finance that from somewhere else. Since it is a small business, banks might not be interested to give you a loan whereas big corporations have no problems financing their business.

Hiring employees

You need to hire employees. People are interested to work in a big company. They see career prospects over there. You may not find people who are interested to work in your business. Even though you have this challenge, you have to find the best people and form a team to run your business successfully.

Maintaining cash flow

You may not pay much attention to the accounting and finance part of your business. You focus on doing different things and find out you don't have the money that you need to run your business. That's a big challenge.

Many businesses fail only because they fail to maintain cash flow. You have to pay special attention to cash inflow and cash outflow. When you maintain your cash flow, you will have enough cash when you need to run your business. You will not face any problems to implement what you plan.

Running your business when you are not available

People know you. They trust you and when you are not available in your business, it can be challenging to run your business. You become the brand of your business. It is a good thing at the beginning, but when you grow your business, your business should stand out as a brand. Otherwise, your business may die with you.
