Talking Business

Let’s talk business! Running your own company is akinPoker_hand to playing poker. Each day you’re dealt a new hand and have to decide your moves based on other players at the table. You also have to determine how much you’re willing to risk on each bet. That’s what owning a business is in a nutshell – making decisions with limited information and managing risk.

One of the unexpected shocks and challenges for first time entrepreneurs is handling decision-making overload. Most first time business owners have spent their entire careers as employees where authority and influence were limited. Shifting to an environment where budget and resources are constrained with every move having a direct impact on one’s livelihood can be overwhelming.

It’s hard to talk with friends and family about what you’re going through and even your professional network can’t relate because it consists mostly of people still in an employee state of mind. There are Meet-up groups and professional organizations in most cities that can provide some support, but many business owners are not comfortable asking questions or sharing challenges for fear of creating a bad impression.

One of the key drivers in starting Navabiz was to help entrepreneurs through the learning curve as well as tough times. People are comfortable communicating in variety ways depending on the situation, so we’ve created several options to meet these needs.
