Recognizing the challenges small business owners face this week

Did you know that this week is recognized across the country as National Small Business Week? For more than 50 years, this week has provided people in Fresno and all across the U.S. with the opportunity to stop and appreciate all that small businesses contribute to jobs, the economy and competition in the marketplace.

With all this in mind, it can be a good time to highlight some of the unique challenges small business owners must face and overcome in order to find success.

  1. Every dollar matters. Larger companies are not going to thrive or die because of hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Small businesses, on the other hand, have a much smaller window for financial loss or success. Because of this, every monetary decision and deployment of resources must be made thoughtfully.
  2. Employee relations can be complex. In smaller companies, employees and employers often have much closer relationships. This familiarity can blur the line between personal and business, complicating matters like harassment, termination decisions and employee agreements.
  3. Every misstep has consequences. Due to smaller budgets and fewer resources, small businesses may not be able to weather the legal storms stemming from breaches of contracts, commercial lease disputes or tax issues. Minimizing any missteps related to these areas can be crucial.

Overcoming and avoiding these and other challenges is not easy, but it is vital in ensuring a small business is successful and continues to be valuable in the market. 

Considering all the obstacles and pain points already confronting small business owners, the last thing they need is to also tackle all the legal nuances involved in business formation and operation. They should not also have to shoulder the burdens of addressing compliance issues, filing legal paperwork and resolving disputes.

This is why California business owners often work with business law attorneys. With legal guidance and support, business owners can stay focused on running the business.
