I just recently read about this article. The thing catches my attention because of it's title: Eleven Easy Ways to Destroy Your Company. I just wondered why would any one destroy his/her own business? But I came to think of it, this article features some reasons that one should prevent from happening on each and everyone's business. Here is the list (the explanation on each one is on the link above): Lowly Extension Cords Bad Receivables Interviewing Hiring without doing background checks Vehicles Vehicles, again Vehicles, and again Insurance The wrong accountant Bad controls Bad company policies This quote serves right for this article: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure or Prevention is Better than Cure.
