According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, over 50% of businesses fail in the first year and 95% fail within the first five years. With it being the start of the new year which means new beginnings for many businesses I wanted to give you some tips on how to avoid being part of the failure stigma that often seems to plague the small business world. Success is the goal that every business owner wants to reach, but often do realize what goes into obtaining success within their company.
