The outlook for new businesses is not good. Eighty percent of new businesses fail within their first 18 months — and some don’t even last that long! How and why does this happen? Nearly all entrepreneurs and startup businesses are making the same mistake. Entrepreneurs are taking on too much responsibility, and ultimately falling flat on their faces. Here are some area where entrepreneurs may want to consider getting a little help:
Go To An Experienced Accountant For Strong Financial Leadership
Going it alone can be a grave mistake — for several different reasons. First, “startup teams need experience thinking, acting, and operating like a startup,” Forbes writes. “Investors do not want to back a person, they want to back a complete team, in ca (more…)
When it comes right down to it, business advisers and accountants don’t have a concrete image that can be conjured up for the layman. Their titles are just too ambiguous. What can the best accounting firm do for you? It’s likely the only answer most people could give would be “accounting.” These advisers can actually help with a lot of things though.

“Emily Jerry was nearly ready to go home from a Cleveland hospital. The grapefruit-size tumor in her abdomen seemed gone, and the 2-year-old with blond ringlets and blue eyes was getting one last round of chemotherapy just to make sure,” USA Today writes. Emily died during that last round of chemotherapy, owing to a pharmacy error. What went so horribly wrong?
A Series of Pharmacy Errors Kills Emily Jerry, Age 2

Though the online marketplace is still in its infancy, relative to how consumers are expected to shop in the future, it has already evolved quite a bit. While PCs and laptops used to be the only way for consumers to do their shopping without having to go to brick and mortar retailers, now, they are able to check out items and find deals from smartphones and tablets while on the go. In fact, last June, according to research conducted by comScore, more consumers were making purchases from their mobile devices than from PCs.
