What Scares Small Business Owners the Most

We thought it made sense to ask about these fears during Halloween, but of course these concerns apply year-round.

You'll see that the scariest scenarios for business owners involve things that are out of their control - economic conditions, tax increases, governmental change.

Encouraging, perhaps, is that only 15% named a recession as their biggest fear, suggesting the likelihood of one may be fairly low in their estimation. Optimism about the economy is also up to 70% compared to 62% last October.
