1. Despite of being positive and hardworking person who always strive to achieve the highest standard possible at any given time and as a start up entrepreneur, sometimes I cannot demonstrate the ability to work under intensive pressure, market or sell products and services to customers of all background.
2. I make revenue but no profit.
3. Lack of some basic skills in Marketing, sales, advertising, Accounting and finance are the major problems.
4. Lack of Resources required to expand my business.
5. I am poor in making follow-up and refarrals.
In line with this saying " You don't know what you don't know".
I am eager to learn, I enjoy overcoming challenges and I have a genuine interest in Marketing, sales, advertising, Accounting and Finance. Although I don't need to be an expert in Accounting but if I can get information on how to read a financial statement, knowing fixed and variable cost I will be happy.
