Business & Practice Startup & Growth

There is absolutely no denying that business start up is daunting. There is too much to do and not enough hands or hours to do it all in. If you listen to the statistics from the Small Business Administration, most start up's will fail in the first few years.

The goal of this section is to explore the factors that can increase the chance of survival for your practice or business. But survival is not enough…you want your business to thrive. With that in mind, we'll explore planning, operations, financial viability, business development and more.

As with all our sections, feel free to contact us with thoughts and ideas for other information that you'd find helpful.
