Both financial viability and the projected future success of the venture weigh on a prospective buyer's mind, so here are a few ways to make sure you can show those qualities.

As you build your small business, you decide many things during the course of a day, a week and a month. Colors and fonts, logos, business structure, financing options. Employees, operating procedures, location, and hours. Strategy, marketing positions and branding.

Integrated circuit cards, also knows as IC or chip cards, have been a global standard in credit and debit card transactions for many years, but relatively new for merchants in the United States. Chip and PIN cards--the title given to this technology in Ireland and Great Britain--is also known as EMV throughout Europe, which stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa. "Chip" refers to a embedded computerized chip in the smart card, and PIN is the personal identification number a customer uses in place of a signature.

Proof is according to Gallup, that ranks small business growth in the U.S. as 12th in the world, following countries like Italy, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Israel, New Zealand and Sweden. The post highlights the disparity in new business creation from the 1980s versus today. Thirty years ago there were more than 100,000 new businesses staying open than there were closing. Today, 70,000 more businesses close than are even started. Since two-thirds of jobs are created by small business, this statistic could point to the sluggish job market. With a grim outlook, how do you stay alive in this tough market?
