While to an outsider it may seem obvious that a proverbial avalanche is about to strike a business, those intimately involved always seem to be the last ones to know. It simply takes them by surprise. This is why it is often the case in SMEs and privately-held companies that entrepreneurs destroy wealth faster than they create it – an avalanche of lost dreams, income, capital, opportunities and shareholder value.
