Starting up a small business on your own can seem a daunting task – and rightfully so. Only about 62% of small businesses successfully make it into their third year, and only 35% reach the ten-year mark. Yet, for those with a healthy amount of risk and ambition, those statistics may be a glass “half-full” sort of situation. With the right entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and smart planning, your small business has just as good a chance as any to succeed. Take a look at these helpful tips for any start-up business.

For small shops like doughnut shops, which may have one employee working during the wee hours or the late nights, or several working during peak morning hours, the question of employee training may take a different turn than other retail stores. Whether you are manning the ship alone or employing others to oversee your shop while you are gone, you might ask yourself, how do I make sure everything is going to be fine when I return?
Here are some tips for owners of small bakeries that may need only one person working at a time:
“BakeryInsurance.org found me a plan that had everything a retail doughnut shop could ever need in business coverage. No superfluous fees or costs for things I didn’t need. I pay less than I would for general business coverage because they found a plan that tailored to MY business needs, and I feel well taken care of.”
“I don’t know what I would have done if BakeryInsurance.org hadn’t found me the plan that would cover nearly all of my expenses after a fire destroyed half the town, including my shop, The Sandwitches. I was beside myself. I worked for ten years to make that shop successful and it was all gone in an afternoon. Luckily, BakeryInsurance.org directed me to a plan that covered fires and I am in the process of rebuilding right now. I wouldn’t have been able to do it otherwise.”
“Some young kids broke into the deli late at night and cleaned out the cash register. They were having some fun, too, spray-painting all the walls. I’m a good, clean businessman and was appalled. I’m so glad I let BakeryInsurance.org take care of finding me an insurance plan because I probably would have never thought to look for that. The provider they connected me with helped me clean up their mess, thank God.”
