The New Year celebrations are barely out of the way before small businesses have to face an early nemesis – the month of February.

As leading business advisor Greg Hayes explains on StartupSmart today, February is a nexus of unpleasant factors such as the impact of Christmas costs and the slow January trading period.

Happily for start-ups, Hayes has some useful advice on how they can overcome this early obstacle and plan for the year ahead.

Elsewhere today, Graeme McCormack identifies what to look out for in a franchise contract and Ms Manners has some gripping wine advice. Literally.
