Why You May Not Want to Start a New Business Keep What You Earn

    • Entrepreneurship

In this episode, we tackle a common trend among entrepreneurs: the allure of starting fresh with a new venture. While evolving businesses to align with current trends and customer interests is wise, impulsively jumping into an entirely new entity can have unforeseen consequences. I'll discuss the risks of resetting your business's "birthday" and the harsh truth about how this affects your credibility with lenders, the maturity of your business, and your long-term financial strength. Hear a cautionary tale about a client who learned this the hard way and how you can leverage existing structures like dbas ("doing business as") to avoid similar pitfalls.

04:40 Consider business continuity when starting new ventures.
07:17 Add value, understand long term impacts, pivot.
