Failure to communicate...
Over the past two years, we at 4E have become familiar with many emerging "C" Industry businesses. No matter how much money you have, communications will kill your business & kill a deal!
As you navigate the bumpy waters of the industry in whatever state you're in, the daily/weekly meetings are an absolute. It is a complete surprise that with all the attention to details that companies have challenges "saying what they mean".
We highly recommend that you keep a calendar just for meetings and updates to all staff & interested parties. This will eliminate most major problems, and working with 4E can help with everything else!
