Keeping me out of trouble was something installed in me when I was growing up. This is a character that cannot develop at a later stage unless a child was raised like that from the age of three and six which is the time when they form or develop their personality.
How a child is raised determines their adulthood and it includes the business world. Right now we are not really discussing about raising a child so we will go back to our main topic which is staying out of trouble as a business person.
A criminal record is one thing that should be avoided because the business reputation and even the owner, has to be protected strictly and therefore, you wouldn’t want to be on the opposite side of the law.
Serious matters have to be sorted out immediately before they go out of hand. For example, attorneys contacting you and many other matters brought to your attention like police giving you a call regarding something, it is strictly important not to delay lest the matter gets handed to the judge and end up with a criminal record or even black listed.
Revenue on the other had should be taken as a serious issue. If you have totally no idea of how to go about your returns, hire an accountant just to be on a safe side because revenue could make your business as well as personal life a hell.
What I did was committing myself to revenue websites and making use of my client who worked with the same institute and I got myself well informed. That helped me a lot to save all the money that would be paid to accountants and since then I learned that nothing is impossible unless you commit to it.
