Phoenix, Arizona, March 27, 2012 – The Redwood Alliance, a group of like-minded small business owners serving as advisory board of each other to help promote business success, is now helpings its members remove the barriers to success by business networking. “Phoenix Business Networking is one of the best ways to help small businesses in Phoenix discover their full potential and remove all the barriers for their success,” Les Abrams, co-founder of The Redwood Alliance said. According to the Small Business Administration (SBA), only 51 percent of small businesses survive its first five years of operation. This is a very significant figure which tells something about the big possibility for a business to fail in the early years of its operation. There are different reasons why a business may fail or succeed. And no one can better understand these things than businessmen and business owners themselves. “Business owners have a better understanding about running a business. Who can better advice a businessman than his fellow businessman? This is why The Redwood Alliance is providing an avenue where business people can meet and discuss things,” added Abrams. To reduce the possibility of business failure, several groups like The Redwood Alliance group were organized serving as a business network for businessmen. Business networking is becoming popular these days because of its great benefits. Networkers will be able to participate in free advice and consultancy sessions from people who are also knowledgeable about running a business. Members of the group can also help each other when trials and difficulty arise. The Phoenix Business Networking group has earned a good reputation when it comes to providing their members with valuable information which they can use for their growth and development. As Abrams said, “Our members can learn from each other because everyone will have a chance to share and listen to what their fellow businessmen have to say.” Abrams also said, “With the right knowledge that our group can provide, combined with your right attitude, you will surely be able to remove all the barriers to your success.” Common barriers to business success include fear to discover the great potential of your business because of lack of knowledge. There is a common saying in business which says that the higher the risk, the bigger the return. And this is almost always true. But you don’t have to risk on something that is completely new to you or something you have no knowledge about. With business networking, there are so many things you can learn that can help you move forward in your business and explore great possibilities without fear. Another barrier of success is the lack of vision. Most small business owners are so focused on the day-to- day operation of their business and they forget all about their vision. Vision is very important because it is what motivates us to do something. The same is true for businesses; if you are working for the ‘now’ only without a clear vision of what you like to achieve in the coming years, you will easily get tired and frustrated whenever you will encounter trials. But when you have something in mind on what you like to achieve, you will be motivated to work and to move forward despite all challenges.
