Fear is a powerful force. There are people that won't get on elevators, won't fly, or won't get in front of a group and speak. Fear changes our decisions and causes some to go out of their way in order to avoid those situations. Many small business owners are afraid to grow their business. And the funniest part about it is that don't even know they have this fear.
In starting your small business you took a risk. You left the stability of larger established business in which you were an employee in order to start your own thing and do it the right way. You were able to grow your small business to a point that have been able to gain some stability and your business is actually turning a profit. So clearly you don't fear growth, right? Wrong.
