Essentials of a commercial lease

When it comes to getting what you want in a commercial lease arrangement, the time to act is before you sign. With so many details involved with negotiating a lease, it can be hard to remember all of the points you should cover.

Going to bring on a business partner?

Running a business has many challenges. You may not have a strong desire to take on all of these on your own. This may lead you to consider bringing on a business partner, someone to help share the load and collaborate with. Good business partnerships can bring a lot of success for companies. A troubled partnership, however, could pose real challenges for a business and make life more difficult for all of the partners. There are steps business owners can take to try to ensure a partnership falls into the first category rather than the second.

How do you determine financial value in sweat equity agreements?

Sweat equity is the non-monetary contribution made to an enterprise or project. For cash-strapped entrepreneurs, sweat equity is used to grow the business when throwing money at it isn’t an option. The labors put into the business increase its value, creating equity.

Set your business up for success with the right lease

You have decided that you are ready to advance your career. You have completed your education and have decided that you want to start your own business. You’ve created marketing plans and researched the competition. You know you have a great product and are ready to provide it to the public. The time to take action is now.

What are the advantages of a merger?

The business section is filled with news about corporate mergers and acquisitions. It’s often when a large company purchases a smaller one, but mergers can also occur when two similarly-sized organizations decide to become one. There are many high-profile examples in wide ranging industries: Exxon-Mobil, Time Warner and America Online, and the beer industry’s SABMiller-AB InBev mergers are all recent, well-known examples. While these are household names, small businesses frequently consider mergers and consolidations when it makes business sense as well.
