Building a business from the ground up can seem like a daunting task, especially for young entrepreneurs. With so many questions involved in the process, it can make finding reliable advice nearly impossible. Cobb Cole attorney and partner John Ferguson was recently spotlighted as a resource for a new publication by Evolve titled “Build to Last: Q&A with the Experts.” In this publication, John discusses business growth and development over time and relays thoughtful advice to entrepreneurs who have recently opened or plan to open a new business.
John Ferguson joined Cobb Cole law firm through the law clerk program, which he attended in 1991, and has been an essential member of our team of experienced attorneys ever since. His main areas of practice focus on business and corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, and franchise law. With 30 years of practice and experience in business law, John Ferguson’s knowledgeable advice within this publication will be beneficial for all entrepreneurs.
John’s ideas on sustaining a business over time, business planning, and overall philosophy for maintaining a business are critical points that many entrepreneurs can use to gain a sense of confidence and a clear understanding of the journey ahead of them. However, the biggest takeaway from this piece might be every entrepreneur’s holy grail when it comes to starting a new business; failure. As John states, “there is no shame in failing, but ideally, failure only comes after realizing, adapting, and attempting to change to avoid failure.”
