Hi, I'm Robert Fullerton CPA, founder/owner of Start-Up Management Inc. Start-Up Management works with both new and well established businesses:
New business ventures: we help new ventures evaluate their market potential, develop a strong business model, reduce failure risk, establish proper structure and launch successfully.
Established businesses: our focus is on imposing financial discipline, developing business strategy, and helping established businesses drive profit, cashflow, and growth (see our RVF Consulting page).
Here is why you may need help with your business:
In order to build a successful business, you need a marketable product/service, a sound business plan, proper tax structure, access to capital, and the financial expertise to solve problems, manage risks, and make good decisions. According to the SBA, if you don't have these skill sets in your business, you have a more than 50% likelihood of failure.
Businesses fail because of poor management.
Here is where most entrepreneurs typically go wrong (4 things you must avoid):
1) They usually don't "stress test" their business idea or model, but dive right in, starting a business with inherent flaws
2) They underestimate the risks and are totally unprepared for things they do not see coming
3) Their lack of experience or poor strategy result in bad decisions and missed opportunities
4) The business struggles to generate sales, develops cash flow problems, can't pay its bills and eventually fails
If you are the owner of a business, or are thinking of starting one, we urge you to take this seriously. A 50% failure rate is like flipping a coin. Don't gamble with your business success, and don't go it alone...get professional advice and help.
