Profit off Being You
The most overlooked challenge in life, is that it's hard to see your own uniqueness. You have a talent. Everyone does. It's a part of who you are, but it's often hard to understand it, take control of it, and make it work for you!
The harsh truth is that, more than likely, no one else is worrying about what makes you unique. You don't get assigned a talent coach at birth. Schools only teach what everybody is supposed to learn. Work is more concerned with your performance, and what needs to get done. Your family and friends are busy with their own life demands and expectations. More than likely, you are feeling overwhlemed by those around you giving their unsolicited advice to "try this," "you have to do it this way," and "be like this."
Especially in today's competitive envionment, it's often difficult to identify your unique strengths that you have to offer. To be truly your best, it is not sufficient to understand that you are unique, or even understand what makes you unique. Ultimate success comes only when you take what's unique about you and figure out how to make it useful.

Taking your business to the next level
The most common reasons small businesses fail include a lack of capital or funding, retaining an inadequate management team, a faulty infrastructure or business model, and unsuccessful marketing initiatives.
There are 30.2 million small businesses in the U.S. But only a fraction of them survive. 20% of small businesses fail by the first year, 30% by the second, 50% by the fifth, and by the 10th year, a staggering 70% of businesses have shut off their lights.
For minorities, the numbers can be even more horrific. Eight out of 10 Black-owned businesses fail within the first 18 months. Studies show that during periods of economic turmoil, minority-owned businesses fail at a much higher rate than other businesses. This happens, in part, because of systemic racism at financial institutions that make it difficult for minority-owned businesses to obtain debt financing.
Bad management has also caused minority-owned organizations to permanently close their doors. Poor leadership results in high turnover of employees; the cost of recruitment and training becomes prohibitive, which can impact a business's ability to continue operations.
Managers and/or owners have the most direct influence on employees they manage. They carry the responsibility for aligning the performance of the business and its staff with overarching organizational goals. Management plays a vital role in shaping organizational culture.
“Good” management benefits every aspect of a business, including the executives, the employees and the customers. Good management involves considering every employee as an individual and finding ways to maximize their potential by using their unique skills.
