  1. I found this podcast on business failures to be very helpful. I like that George highlights that if a person tries to start a business they will fail and those who do not fail are those who never try. I like the point that if a person wants some help on not failing, the person needs to have a very specific plan, including details on their customers. I also like the point of not using the business bank account for personal use. I feel that a person should also try to keep their personal bank account only for personal use. I feel that another reason why small business fail is because a person does not seek out law advice to know the laws of the state they are practicing in. When they know the laws and have a legal team on their back if a lawsuit does happen the business will be prepared.
