Why do many small businesses fail?  The answer is: lack of money. Many entrepreneurs with great ideas have been unsuccessful because they did not have the financial resources to start or run their businesses.

So, before you can start your own business, you have to determine if your business is viable.


Helpful Tip
Before starting your business research the start-up costs for your business.  Remember, start-up costs are one-time-only expenses that must be paid to start the business. Knowing what you start-up costs are will help you price your product as well as let you know if you can afford your business idea.
