Breaking news: running a business is hard. There are so many different aspects to juggle as a small business owner that it’s impossible to be an expert in everything. But one area stands out as the biggest problem for small businesses: finances. According to smallbizgenius.com, 82% of small businesses that fail do so because of financial issues.
