As a business owner myself, I am looking at how the lessons apply to our business and how we can grow and improve our management. Everyone has something they can learn or do better.

What are your the 3 legal issues that small businesses should think about?

Baker_BlackandBillingual_1

1. Confirm business agreements in writing 2. Cutting legal corners now can cost a lot 3. Google... does not replace experienced professional advice

1. Small businesses should be sure to confirm business agreements in writing--agreements amongst business owners, agreements with customers, and agreements with vendors/suppliers. 2. Cutting legal corners now can cost a lot more down the road--either in increased liability or lost opportunities. 3. A Google search does not replace experienced professional advice.
