How a cyberattack could upend your business

Do you think your business is too small to attract the attention of information thieves? Think again. Small and medium companies are routinely targeted by cybercriminals, often because they don't have the same emphasis on security and the same level of watchfulness that larger organizations do. They also often lack the resources that large companies have to prevent cyberattacks.

Is 'at-will' employment good or bad?

As an Ohio employer, you probably know that the state considers employees who are working without a contract or who aren't under a collective bargaining agreement to be "at-will" employees. That means that you can essentially fire them for almost any reason that isn't discriminatory. In turn, the employees don't owe you any particular duty to remain on the job -- which means they can decide to simply quit for any reason.

Small businesses need to protect themselves from lawsuits

When starting a business in Ohio, there are a lot of decisions to make, and owners have many hats they need to wear. One thing to keep in mind is to set up a good employee culture from the beginning and to put steps into place to help prevent employees, clients or vendors from suing.

Protecting your family business from disputes

All business partners in Ohio run the risk of not getting along at some point. However, when family is involved in a business, the risk sometimes climbs higher. Mixing family with business means that people know each other’s deepest secrets and oldest wounds, making it easy to add fuel to the fire when things are at their worst.

Some tips for a successful start-up business in Ohio

Even so, the Buckeye State remains one of the best places to build a business. Whether an entrepreneur wants to build an empire that spreads across the nation or a humble mom and pop shop that supports a small community, Ohio is a suitable candidate.
