Plan for success, business mistakes according to Michael Clement:

  • You can’t grow your business unless you are not the one working in it. Be a business owner, and not the technician of your business.
  • Extend your runway, and position yourself for success. Pay down debt, reduce your living expenses, and plan for not having an income for at least 1 year.

    There is also a certain type of coverage intended for any
    uninsured individual, even the underinsured.
    Usually, it is not easy to tow vehicles which are heavy
