1. "Failure to act or decide. A lot of small businesses do an overabundant amount of research rather than doing enough research to get a very solid direction."

2. "You've got this concept and you've birthed it and you're so attached to it even though the market tells you it has to change. A lot of times as small-business owners we're so passionate about what we're doing it's hard to accept the fact that what we're doing might be wrong. People don't pivot and listen to the market."
