Chicago, United States - October 23, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Chicago entrepreneur, author, and business consultant Darlene Ziebell, is excited to announce she has launched a brand-new giveaway, “12 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting A Business.” This guide will highlight 12 critical lessons accompanied by real-life stories that Ziebell has learned throughout a 40-year career of owning multiple successful companies.

Ziebell’s valuable guide will feature numerous potential pitfalls new business owners are likely to encounter yet, with an 85% business failure rate in the U.S. consistent over the past 24 years, are unlikely to be aware of if they are just starting their business. The 12 lessons within the guide cover prevalent issues or problems in almost every sector of a business, including marketing, legal, financial, and human resources.

“There’s a whole range of problems that can occur throughout the process of starting a business, to managing a business, to deciding when it’s the best time to exit a business,” said Ziebell. “With a lot of these issues that can occur, nobody wants to talk about it, and nobody knows about it; much of it is not taught in business school. But if you take the time to be prepared as a small business owner, you can prevent these things from putting you out of business.”

The 12 lessons, or challenges you need to watch out for in the guide, are each accompanied by a personal story behind them. The personal stories are first-hand accounts, and lessons learned that Ziebell has personally experienced in her entrepreneurial journey. They tell the story of what happened in very personal terms, how it happened, and the behind-the-scenes events associated with the issues so people can more easily relate to the lessons and know what to watch out for.

“If the issues addressed in the guide were 12 things that people already knew when they started a business, they’d be able to recognize the warning signs when these things happen because they will happen,” noted Ziebell. “I’ve interviewed so many business owners over the years, and one or more of these things have happened to all of them in some form or variation. They either find a way to overcome them, or most of them don’t overcome them, and their businesses fail.”

In addition to launching the giveaway, Ziebell has also started a podcast and plans to host a series of online workshops and a business coaching program soon.

To receive the giveaway guide, people can visit her website, enter their email address, and immediately receive the guide. It is a must-have to avoid the 12 prevailing yet often-unknown challenges that can sink a business and avoid becoming one of the 85% who fails.

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Nov 28, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Nov 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Nov 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Nov 28, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Nov 28, 2020

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...
