Tips for avoiding accidents with commercial vehicles

Large truck accidents that take place on North Carolina roads can result in injuries or death to all involved.

Therefore, it is important for those driving lighter cars to know how to stay safe when sharing the road with large trucks.

Things to consider before becoming a franchisee

Opening a new business in North Carolina as a franchisee can be a lucrative endeavor, but it's important to consider a variety of risk factors before moving forward with an investment. One of the first factors to analyze is whether or not a business opportunity is in an established or relatively new market. Old markets aren't 100 percent safe, and new ones aren't always fads, but how established a particular business is should weigh heavily in calculating the risk.

What to consider before selling a business
