As you venture into forming your own Startup business there are many components one needs to take into consideration. Regardless of your knowledge in the specific area of your start-up business, you may still run into issues should you fail to plan from the beginning.

Two major problems that business owners and entrepreneurs may face as a start-up are the following:

(1) Contracts

With any business, having an ineffective contract can be the biggest pitfall. It can hurt every aspect of your business. As a business owner, you will be forming and signing many contracts throughout the life of your business. Your priority should be to make sure that these contracts are handled correctly and efficiently. Whether you are hiring employees, you are in a partnership or have other agreements within your business, the terms of each of these agreements can play a significant part in your business both now and in the future.

As a business owner, you may want to take into consideration to consult an attorney on the terms of your agreements to make sure each contract is legally sound, protecting both your interests and your businesses interest and in good form prior to signing on the dotted line.

(2) Other areas of business not taken into consideration.

Additional areas of a start-up business that should be taken into consideration include:

• Employment paperwork
• Independent contractor agreements
• Non-disclosure agreements
• Intellectual property protection
• Tax issues
• Term of Use and Privacy Policy for Internet use

Although these are only a few areas to be considered, there are many components that business owners should focus on in order to avoid potential mistakes as they begin and form a successful business. Creating and a launching a business takes a lot of time, energy and effort. For that reason, you want to avoid any simple legal mistakes that can burden not only you but the success of your business.
