Apparently lots of people think that starting a business is easy. In the U.S. alone, some 1-million people start a new business each year, and 80-percent fail within a year. I believe that those that fail do so because of a lack of planning. Many start a business as an extension of their technical skills, but don’t know how to properly plan for success as a business owner. And, others believe they are going to make tons of money.
