1. cash flow

2. adding and getting the right staff

3. ever increasing overhead costs, such as insurance, super contributions... list goes on

4. time, never enough hours in the day to do the important things such as growing the business

5. margins, more and more products are now just commodities. It's getting harder and harder to differentiate in order to gain higher margins

Yes I am struggling with 5, so here are my spring to minds ...

1. Cash flow, as usual, don't think this will ever change for any of us ... 

2. Staff. Finding staff with the passion and ethics of the business owner is tricky.

3. Where to focus social efforts. FB, twitter, G+, LinkedIn, blogs etc. Where/when/what to post.
