I'm So Mad...Aimee L. Stern
What bugs business owners the most? The National Commission for Entrepreneurship in Washington, D.C., has been interviewing entrepreneurs nationwide. Here's what they've heard so far:
-- Benefit Battles: Workers are demanding ever-more in benefits. They insist on expensive packages that allow them to move retirement monies from job to job without penalties.
-- Finding Guidance: Entrepreneurs can't find seasoned executives to mentor their company from startup to maturity.
-- The Skill Shortage: Many high school grads lack the communications and analytical skills to do even simple jobs such as answer the phones or run the supply room.
