Nine out of ten new businesses fail. That’s not a secret, in fact a lot of people are aware of that and yet each year more businesses are being started. Ask the average person and he would tell you that he would like to start a business someday, even though they don’t have a clear cut idea of what it would be.

This desire to have one’s own business is driven by the fact that it is the only real way to gain financial independence. What most people don’t think about though is how they can turn around their business when it starts to fail. That can be a more daunting task than just starting a new one.
