As the owner of a single-person business, you are the sales team, the accounting department, public relations and product development departments all rolled into one ambitious individual. Juggling all of that responsibility and making a living isn’t easy, but people just like you are increasingly pulling in impressive annual sales numbers and setting examples for other entrepreneurs to follow. In fact, when the last U.S. Census Bureau report on “non-employer” businesses was released, more than two million of these business owners pulled in more than $100,000, with many making significantly more than that.
Despite the success many entrepreneurs are achieving, microbusinesses are still faced with difficult challenges. A recently released Gallup survey revealed that more U.S. small business owners ranked targeting business opportunities as their top concern for 2014 than any other factor. Whether you are making a sales pitch to a new prospect or consulting with an existing client, chances are you do quite a bit of traveling. For a single-person or microbusiness owners who are always on the move, missing the call that leads to a huge opportunity is often a major fear—but it doesn’t have to be.
