October 12, 2022

Currently, there are over 30 million small enterprises in the United States, and that number is growing rapidly. However, not all new businesses survive. In fact, an overwhelming majority of these small businesses will fail in the first five years. 


There are several reasons why a business could fail, including the state of the economy, the absence of a viable product, ineffective marketing, and poor management. This is why it's important for new business owners to be familiar with the procedures involved in launching a company so that their venture is properly positioned for success.
