Lack of motivation may be the biggest threat to your language business. Sales and marketing can be tedious and rather annoying when you lack the motivation or if you aren’t in the best of moods.  It may be difficult to maintain motivation if you haven’t been seeing any significant growth lately, or, even worse, you see your business going downhill. Don’t allow this to drain you of your drive to move forward, because without it, forward is the last place you will be moving. Now, keeping one’s chin up isn’t something that comes to everyone naturally. Find out what your biggest sources of motivation are and keep them close. This could be some positive feedback you received from a job well done or some inspirational quotes that you keep handy.
