Im using smart pls student version..and i was conducting the reliability and validity for the pilot study of 30 respondents...but the pls refused this smale size and a message was saying that this is a very small sample size to conduct any calculations..

Any ideas what should i do, although i know that smart pls can work on small sample sizes easily

Try increasing your sample a little but. Minimum sample size can be calculated by the 10 x number of arrowheads pointing towards the endogenous construct. If you have three arrowheads, the minimum sample size is 30.
