Loss aversion is a very real thing that can halt the growth of your business in its tracks. The term refers to the natural tendency we all have to fear loss much more than we get excited about equivalent gains. Unfortunately, if you are an entrepreneur, this often causes you to make decisions that are not always in the best interest of your business.
