Reasons for fall in Business / why Businesses fall?

There are numerous possible reasons for business failure. We can take a look at some of these reasons for fall in Business. First, we should try to understand from a layman's mind as to why businesses fall. So that then it will be worth to understand that astrology can identify all these reasons for fall in Business from your horoscope. Then astrology can also give you indications of success in Business from your horoscope. 

Absence of Effective Preparation

For setting up a business, one needs to prepare for not only a few months in advance but a few years. The lack of this short-term and long-term scheduling often creates troubles for your organization, leading you down the business failure path. Your list at the time of setup needs to include measurable goals and results, specific to-do lists, dates and deadlines, and a back-up plan. 

Flawed Leadership

A weak leader in command of even the best of the fleets can cause it to sink. When an organization is led by someone who cannot make the right decisions at the right time, it becomes evident in each aspect. From the company finances to employee management, things will start deteriorating, slowly moving towards business losses. A good leader takes time to study, learn from other's mistakes, and listen to the suggestions of those who know their respective fields better. And a successful entrepreneur is one who does all it takes to become a good leader. 

Lack Of A USP

Having a fantastic product is not all. Today, the market is too competitive, and without a unique selling point for your merchandise, you will become lost in the sea. Therefore one must try to define a unique way to set the organization apart from all others. What makes your company so different and better than others out there? Find something to answer that question, and you'll successfully build a brand. 

Needs Of The Clientele

Every company and organization claims that their customers and clients are their number-1 priority, but that is rarely the case in reality. In most cases, their profits, survival, etc. are their priority. When your trade loses touch with their customers that is when they start drifting from success. No one wishes to be associated with an enterprise that never listens to their needs. Therefore, keep an eye on the demand that is being created every day. Moreover, change your products from time to time to match the requirements. Especially pay attention to the negative reviews because they tell you what areas need further improvement. 

Unable Or Unwilling To Learn

Business failures are part of the bargain, but losing hope at the first fall and not learning a lesson from your mistakes is the biggest blunder that many make. Often, entrepreneurs either believe themselves to be perfect or are utterly oblivious to their faux pas, which is not even their fault. It is human nature to look outside for blames. However, if you cannot surround yourself with truthful people who can point out your errors or do not want to listen to them, then that is where you go wrong. 

Infusing new generation into business

Sometimes younger lads of business owners are inducted into business. Placing them right at the top management levels can bring a lot of dissatisfaction at already established management hierarchy. You would have seen how the young generations of Infosys / Wipro to name a few is inducted into management with proper training at appropriate levels. And how it happened in case of Vijay Mallya? We know the results of both of these organisations.

Unsatisfactory Management 

An inadequate management system in the company can harm your organization in several ways. You will be hurting your employees in various manners, including distrusting them, micro-managing every department, a communication gap between the lower and the upper levels, and working without specific standards and structure. As a result, some of them may leave you for better prospects, and people will have no loyalty for the company. The indications of loose management will also harm your relations with your clientele, who will not have any reasons to trust you due to the lack of regulations. 

Inadequate Capital

When you have insufficient working capital, creditors consider your company, a risk. Lenders and investors avoid entering an agreement with such an organization. It indicates that the firm may not be able to repay their financial commitments like loans, bills, etc. on time. Moreover, inadequate funds hamper your enterprise's expansion, maybe even putting the daily processes at risk, inevitably leading to a business fall. 

 Ill-timed Scaling 

To scale a business means to set the stage for the expansion of your trade. This process requires proper planning, funds, staff, partners, technology, and a structure. When you lack in even one of these areas, your plan falls through, and you end up becoming a reason for your business failure. 


Your company's location plays a significant role in your business success, especially if it is dependent on walk-ins. Your base office needs to be at a strategic point where customers can access you easy. It can put your costs at a higher level while decreasing your clientele. 

Revenue vs Profits 

Generally, the experts suggest that at the early stage, one should focus on revenue (turnover) rather than worry about profit margin. But the factor of earning profits should never disappear from your mind. Your revenue is the income generated through the company's primary operations, which usually goes back into paying the bills, the employees' salaries, and the smooth working of the organization. Your revenue is the bare minimum you need to earn, but the extra that you get on top of it is your profit, and maximizing that should be your personal goal. 

Inventory Management

Your inventory is the amount of merchandise you have at a time. Too little of it will damage your sale, while too much merch will disbalance your profit-loss percentage. 


One need not be a perfect mathematician, but one must keep a pristine record of every penny spent. If you ignore Rs 1 today, you are giving way to this becoming Crores & Crores in the future. Proper financial management is the cornerstone of any organization. Therefore, learn the basics, and hire a professional to do the math for you. But you should always remain updated on the status of where you stand. Your finances can help you make many significant decisions like business scaling, and they will be the push you need to make your Business successful. 

Focus  in business

Unless you are entirely concentrated on your firm and its goals, it cannot thrive. In the same vein, if your organization does not have a focused goal to work on continually, it loses its competitive edge. Business success is only possible when the leader is ready to act at a moment's notice, prepared to adapt to the new market changes the very day they are released. A divided focus will make one unable to respond quickly to changes, which is a significant reason behind business fall. 

Personal Use

Your company assets are not supposed to be used for your personal use. For one, it creates specific taxation issues; for another, it damages your credibility with your employees. If you do it, you are giving leverage to others to adopt such practices in the future. It also robs the organization's ability to sponsor its own growth. As a result, you become dependent on other sources for capital like loans, which is a slippery slope leading only to a business fall. 

Expansion? Or Overexpansion?

Expanding one's trade brings one numerous benefits: increased production, reduced costs per unit, increased resources, higher sales and profits, and so much more. However, there is something called taking things too far, and if that happens, you end up disturbing your budget. Overexpansion of the organization can end up compromising several factors in the company, including a budget, quality, management, and other requirements. Click on how astrology helps in business expansion ( insert link) .if you want to know more on this topic else continue reading further. 

Future Planning 

When you start the Business, you need to plan several goals and needs in advance. An organization moves towards business failure in lack of an effective plan. One of the essential steps in this is deciding the successor of the leader. In case of sudden and unexpected events like retirements, departures, or death, the company should not fall in disrepair due to the void left behind. 

Choosing Your Partner

A business partnership can be much like a marriage in the sense that you need to trust your partner before taking the plunge into starting a company. When you make the wrong choices, it's not only you who suffer but also your organization.
