Business Startup & Financing

Our dreams remind us that owning and operating a business can be rewarding, both emotionally and financially. However, the harsh reality is that most new businesses will fail within the first few years. To fight these odds, startup entities need fresh ideas, good marketing strategies, and must align themselves with top professionals.

In starting a business, there are many considerations that must be made. For example, has a proper business plan been drafted for selling the business’ goods or services? What business structure makes most sense from a liability, operating, and tax stand point – an S Corporation, a C Corporation, an LLC, a Sole Proprietorship, a Partnership? How will the startup be financed – capital contributed from owners or investors, debt from lenders, or both? Does a plan exist for maintaining proper recordkeeping, to keep the business in compliance with regulations,

as wellas for assisting management’s decision making? These are but a few of the important questions that must be answered before starting a business.
