When you start a business, you should be excited. You should also be nervous because start-ups can fail in a split second. It is estimated 9 of every 10 startups fail, and the problems with the company range far and wide. According to a Fortune study, the top reason was a lack of market need, or no customers and clients. The #2 reason was because the business ran out of cash. Though based on a small sample, the need for financial planning is overwhelming.
Whatever product you have, you’re putting all your focus on developing and building that product to be successful that there is no capital for sales and marketing. If you can’t afford to market your product, you won’t reach the audience you set out to. Sitting with business start-up advisors in South Jersey and Philadelphia for financial planning will put you on the right track to control your finances and ensure there is still money in the bank for a long and healthy business venture.
