It is one of the toughest decisions we will ever have to make in business. You may have spent so long trying to save money or cut corners, but no matter how much you invest in the company, it is slowly dying a death. But you may feel that you need to go down with the ship. Sometimes a dose of cold hard reality is what we need to tell us it’s time to dump our business. But with this in mind, what are the truths we need to face up to that tell us it’s time to dump the company?

The Money Is Not There

Industries can change. This could be due to competition or changes in technology. There are so many different reasons that the money is not there anymore. And in fact, there could be times when the money wasn’t there to begin with. Many people feel that they need to build up a certain amount of equity to sell off to private equity firms or external resources so they can escape with some finances intact. But there will be times when financially it is not there at all. If you’ve been flogging a dead horse and you find it easier to complain than to take any form of action, consider this a sign that you have to move on.

An Increase In Complaints

The customer never lies. But if you have a very different attitude towards your customers, this could be a sign that you are burning out. We have to remember that there will be times that everything is pointing us towards quitting. If you haven’t had a break for a long time, this may fix issues, but if you struggle to relate with your customers or find them to be difficult people, surprisingly they may pick up on your attitude. It’s important to remember that your business will grow in relation to how you serve your customers. If you don’t make them happy or they don’t make you happy anymore, what should you do? And conversely, if your customers complain but you don’t have the drive to work towards a common goal or even listen to their responses, how much enthusiasm do you have for your company?

You Have Stopped Dreaming

The beginning journey of any entrepreneur is an exciting one. You probably couldn’t stop thinking about your business, but now the signs of burnout are there, but it’s a strain to make it through the day it may be time for you to consider doing something else. Sometimes there can be problems with the business because we made the wrong decisions and no matter how hard we have been working at making a success of this, everything is telling us to give up. But there is a big difference between business problems and when you have a problem with the business. If you have stopped caring about your baby, now might be the time to address moving onto pastures new.

If you have been on the fence for so long and you don’t know what to do, don’t forget to listen to your gut. It’s never a good thing but when we see the signs that it’s time to dump our business that doesn’t mean we failed as an entrepreneur, but it’s the perfect opportunity to start all over again having learned from our mistakes.
