MBP #36 – New Business Pitfalls You MUST Avoid, with CorpNet’s Founder Nellie Akalp

Nellie Akalp, CorpNetNellie Akalp is the CEO and Founder of CorpNet, a document filing service company. CorpNet is Nellie’s second document filing service business, the first of which celebrated a liquidity event back in 2005. In this episode, we talk about why Nellie re-entered the same business area, which was now a more mature and competitive market, as well as what she did in the time between the sale and the founding of CorpNet (which led her to return to her passion, helping small businesses succeed).

We continue the conversation to discuss some common issues small business owners make in starting and operating their business, including some basic steps you can take to protect your business from liability (such as trademark disputes) and other pitfalls.
