Top 10 Reasons Small Businesses Fail   

Owners Don't Know Best  

A lot of information on why businesses fail has come from business owners (it was the fault of the bank, the economy, the employees, etc.)  Unfortunately, if owners knew why their companies were in trouble, they would probably take corrective action, giving their businesses a better chance of survival.   

In reality, the reasons businesses fail are not often simple, pretty, or the fault of the usual suspects.  To learn more, read the article by Jay Goltz from his "You're the Boss" column in the New York Times.
