Failing to plan hurts many startups

Owning a business can become a path to autonomy, financial independence and security. The statistics reflect that there is a high mortality rate among startups, yet small businesses continue to play a significant role in driving the economy and creating new jobs. While the risk is there for Colorado entrepreneurs, so too is the reward. Often, the difference between ultimate success and failure can come down to the details of planning.

Most people who start a new business have some expertise or a solid background in the arena in which their business operates whether it is a service business, product sales, manufacturing, professional services or anything in between. Entrepreneurs typically know the industry they intend to start a business in, but they need to be as well-versed in doing business. Business experts understand the need to plan, prepare and anticipate what running the operation will entail.

Despite the talents and dedication of the owner and all the hard work and sacrifice a startup requires simply to open doors, many businesses fail because of fundamental flaws. For instance, a business plan cannot predicate with certainty the future, but not having a plan is like driving in unfamiliar territory without a road map. Financing, the type of entity the business will operate as, the market for the business purpose and a basic accounting setup are essential no matter what type of business a person operates.

Business formation is a crucial first step in establishing a firm foundation for future success. A business and commercial law attorney may provide guidance and advice on these matters and others to help ensure that a new business has an opportunity to weather the early years and continue operation for the long run.
