ENTREPENEURS

You are in business to succeed. Listed below are some things someone starting or running a business may consider. Where internal skills are lacking external help should be sought and it is not always expensive. Your accountant can be your friend & mentor.

GOOD SKILLS & PLANNING ARE A PRE-REQUISITE TO SUCCESS

Most businesses fail due to:​

  1. Lack of business skills - without the appropriate skills you may not be 'PLANNING', 'MONITORING', 'CONTROLLING' or 'MARKETING' your business effectively.​

  2. Businesses running out of cash - some basic skills like management accounts or cash-flows  can help you avoid this​

  3. Not enough research carried out about your proposed business before starting - unless it is a franchise or you are duplicating a known business type or model you should carry out adequate market research and draw up a business plan to ensure your proposed business is going to be viable and profitable. A bad product, a poor location, not enough or appropriate marketing, poor budgeting, etc can lead to failure.

  4. Using a good firm of Accountants can increase your chances of success by a large extent.
