Blaming the government for financial hardships may be easiest and most obvious however if you dig a little deeper you may come to realize the root of the problem is closer to home.

As we look to the next president, I hear many business owners blaming their financial struggles on the government.  Obviously government policies, especially when it comes to taxes and now health care, affect the financial well-being of businesses and individuals alike.  But your disagreement with government policies does not give you a free pass to spend more than you make and expect financial prowess.

If your finances are not where you want them to be, instead of blaming the government, take a look at the way you are managing your business finances.  If you are honest, you may realize that you are mostly to blame. A hard realization to come to however in the end, the most liberating one. To illustrate this point here are some frequent areas business owners choose to spend unwisely, and… it is usually tied to an emotion:
