bplogo2

Boca Raton, FL – Following the massive economic havoc of 2008, scores of businesses have been trapped in a vicious cycle of debt. When it comes to business, debt is something that must be kept within control all through its lifetime. Massive commercial debt could be big trouble, perhaps even causing you to shut down your business. However, times are tough and businesses can’t help but accumulate debt from their lenders. When debt amount gets out of hand, a business needs to take immediate steps and there are many things a business can actually do to lower the debt level. Under such circumstances, it’s always advisable to ask legal questions before you proceed any further. Business debt is regulated by the same set of laws as individual debt. Nevertheless, there are certain differences between personal debt laws and commercial debt. When a business has overdue taxes, criminal charges can be laid on the business proprietor.

LLCs and Business Debt

LLC or a limited liability corporation can be appointed to handle both debt and legal responsibility for a business. In event that the LLC is prosecuted and loses the case or becomes bankrupt, the business debt can solely be collected from the LLC. Forced sale of assets, for example; business equipment and buildings, garnishment of commercial accounts can help in the debt collection process.

The Rise of Teen Entrepreneurs

August 30, 2012 (LINK)

Please don’t tell Daniel Brusilovsky his business idea is cute. “If I wanted to be cute, I wouldn’t be sitting in your office, taking a cab from the train station,” Brusilovsky says. “I am real. I have an idea that’s truly unique and potentially something big.”

That something big was an idea for connecting teenage entrepreneurs to mentors through a business and tech incubator — one that Brusilovsky, an 18-year-old from San Mateo, Calif., is putting into action through the Teens in Tech Labs Incubator. The company started as a social networkfor young media producers, an online-based way for technical entrepreneurs to connect with one another. It eventually turned into a one-day conference. “That was just a one-day event,” Brusilovsky says. “Imagine if we had more than one day to build entrepreneurship. And that’s where the idea of the incubator came from.”

Written by Kyle Trottier

With today’s gloomy markets, no ray of light produces more hope than getting back to the basics with Entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurs: In It For The Long Haul

Being an entrepreneur is sort of like being a marathon runner.

Marathons are races of endurance characterized by hard training, eating every carb within a 300-ft radius, and most importantly, believing in your abilities. As a runner, you prepare for the long-haul, and ultimately, the voice inside your head is the only thing that’s going to get your wobbly legs across the finish line. You put in the hard work and suffer cramps and blisters because you really enjoy the rush of the race and the sense of accomplishment (we’ve all seen those 26.2 stickers on the back of SUV’s and soccer-mom vans alike) that comes with finishing something so daunting to the average, couch-inhabiting human being

While building a company from the ground up, you’ll endure coffee-fueled, seemingly endless days of work; you’ll voraciously consume every book and blog that you can find on the industry and possible competitors; and most importantly, you’ll believe in your vision–and yourself. As an entrepreneur, you’ll probably face rejection–lots of it. You may face funding difficulties, team issues, product failures, and legal barriers; but it won’t stop you. You’ll keep a positive mindset, and the voice inside your head will push you to keep going.  You’re an entrepreneur because you love the rush that you get from doing what you’re passionate about. Each small success of your company gives you a sense of accomplishment and personal fulfillment.

If you’re thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, be prepared for the hard work and lessons in endurance that you’ll surely face. But never be afraid to strap on your sneakers and start running.
