The time has finally come!
You’re finally going to be your own boss.
After months (or even years) of dreaming and planning, you’re going to start your own business.
You’ll have a million things to take care of as your vision starts to take shape, and your dreams begin to become realities.
But right from the start… and, ideally, before you write your first business check or take your first customer payment… now is the time to establish a solid relationship with an accountant you can trust.
Not to pour cold water on the flame of your passion, but it is rather sobering to note that most small businesses fail. Some studies suggest only a handful (15%) make it to their fifth year!
Many “serial entrepreneurs” (folks who’ve started more than one business) will tell you the difference between success and failure of a new small business is pulling together the right team of advisors to help you dot every “I” and cross every “T.”
And they might say the seeds of their failures have been planted right at the outset – when they failed to get professional help with things like bookkeeping, tax planning, and proper business entity “paperwork.”
So before you get too far down the road, make sure you’re on the road to success.
