Hi Brad,

Good question, translating those corporate skills into the small business world would be valuable.

We do research every couple of years at Flying Solo which may be helpful as it covers key challenges etc. Finding customers, overwhelm and wearing too many hats tend to top the list of challenges broadly. You can get a summary and full report here: http://www.flyingsolo.com.au/survey

I think expertise on setting up automated processes, outsourcing lower value tasks, leveraging technology, pricing for profit, keeping/upselling existing customers and generally focusing on doing just the high value work yourself could be good areas to boost the performance of small business owners.

We find a lot of our members want a better performing business (and more profitable) but not necessarily a bigger business in terms of staff.

All the best with the transition!
