Business start-up

Starting a small business is just like a game of chess. To be successful you need to make the right opening moves.

The business evaluation and establishment phases can be a period of great anxiety due to a combination of excitement, uncertainty and financial risk. Remember to keep your emotions in check because you need to make some very important business decisions in this phase.

There is an old saying, ‘people don’t plan to fail, they just fail to plan.’ This is both valuable advice and a warning for people intending to start or buy a business. All too often people start a business without a business plan or adequate professional accounting and legal advice.
