How Confident Are Business Owners Going Into The Next Year?

For today’s post, we look back at the same 2014 report conducted by UPS Connect from last week.

When business owners were asked to describe their confidence in their business’ success over the next 12 months, 1 in 4 respondents said they were “extremely confident”. On a scale of 1-7, owners had an average confidence rate of 5.39.  

This is an impressive rating which demonstrates that business owners are leaving the agitation from the past behind and emerging with more confidence.

When asked what their top priorities were, nearly 80% of respondents reported that it was to increase revenues. Establishing new customer relationships came in at 67%, and increasing profits stood at 60%. 

Growth is the top priority when it comes to what is necessary.
