CNN reports that the failure rate of small businesses is nearly 70% in California, and that rate has been consistently trending upward. Part of the reason that new businesses struggle is because starting a company or a new venture is intimidating, is complicated, and most new business owners are unfamiliar with all of the steps that they need to take to increase the chances of success.
