FREE Back to Basics Workshop for Entrepreneurs with Karen Bershad on October 1, 2011Posted on September 22, 2011 by
When a new small business is started, it is always with the idea it will succeed. But within the first 5 years, over 80% of these new start-ups will fail. With all the economic uncertainty out there, looming tax increases, mandated healthcare and increasing government bureaucracy and regulations, this makes it even tougher for small businesses to survive and thrive. Many new business quickly fail for the following reasons:
- Poor financial review and planning
- Inadequate capitalization
- Inadequate tax planning
- Poor marketing
- Lack of management systems/controls
- Inability to adapt to changing market conditions
These are just a few common obstacles that an entrepreneur must know and overcome to successfully run any small business.
