Mistakes to Avoid When Starting a Business

You don’t spend the necessary time researching all the necessary steps to start and running the business successfully including following legal guidelines:
There are attorneys, accountants and other professionals that make it their job to help entrepreneurs start a business and stay in business. We strongly recommend hiring someone to help you with both. When you are ready to make sure your business is covered correctly, give us a call at 425-242-5252. Contrast to most other professionals, we provide guidance for free.

Not shopping around for the right insurance:

You know that you should get some insurance but have no idea which kind? Some entrepreneurs depend on online forums or on advice from friends. We strongly encourage you to have a licensed agent give you the information and recommendations that you need to make a sound decision.

Signing a long-term lease
Nobody can predict or guarantee success. Since more start-up businesses fail than succeed in the first few years, you don’t want to financially commit to long-term contracts that can cost you a fortune. While it might be tough to avoid a long-term lease if you need retail space, there are plenty of options for short-term leases. Give us a call today and we can let you know if any of our network of clients have space available.
