My best tip on getting legal advice, accounting advice, financial advice, and that sort of thing is this: Small-business owners are best served by their advisers if they use them together as a team rather than as individuals. If you bring them together to talk about problems, they’re going to educate one another, bring the others’ perspective to each judgment. You’re going to multiply the quality of the advice that you get.
