Vancouver Tax lawyer

  1. If you're inexperienced, seek out numerous reality checks.
  2. Understand your strengths and weaknesses; know your competition.
  3. Commit. You're in it to win it, and you better have enough capital.

  6. Build an experienced team of advisors beyond your CPA and lawyer.
  7. Understand the basics of employment and tax law.
  8. Network: get to know other entrepreneurs from all business sectors.
