SBA Poll Results: 2013 Sales

The Question:

How did 2013 treat your business with regard to sales?

16% - We had a great year in sales.

32% - We had a pretty good year, but not great.

36% - Our business did not grow at all this year.

16% - It still feels like a recession-we’re just holding on.

My Comments:
Our poll last week came approximately 54 months after the end of the Great Recession. As you can see, almost half a decade into a recovery less than one-in-six American small businesses “Had a great year,” and less than half experienced any sales growth. While more than half are experiencing poor performance.

There are a number of reasons for this sad economic condition, which I will talk about in a Feature Article in two weeks. Thanks for participating and stay tuned.
