Blind Spots: How they come about and how they affect your business

17 August 2017 9:16 PM
As a small business owner, nobody expects you to be perfect. Because you cannot see them, blind spots could be a real nuisance.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Aurik Business Accelerator’s Pavlo Phitidis.

Ever wondered what is keeping your business from thriving and reaching the very top? Maybe the blind spots are what's keeping youfrom greatness. But can you avoid them?

If you are supremely good at marketing, it might mean that you're really lousy at accounting.

Pavlo Phitidis, Aurik Business Accelerator

You're not capable 360 degrees around the business and if you believe that you have worked by yourself in building a business you are going to have an infallible view of the world and that is your blind spot.

Pavlo Phitidis, Aurik Business Accelerator

If you don't move into building systems you're going to be stumped later on.

Pavlo Phitidis, Aurik Business Accelerator
