When starting your creativity based business, recognize that you will need a little business know-how to make it all work.
Many people with great art sense and style might not have the real business backing to keep their art-train from tipping off the tracks.
There are plenty of examples of managers and head officers to companies without the highest business degrees, but they always have great business sense.
Being able to track the industry trends and stay ahead are things that are difficult to teach.
However, the other aspects of the business, accounting and marketing for the most part, are not related directly to that artistic aspect.
A person heading into a new business either needs to have those core business skills or be smart enough to hire someone that does.
It's not common, although not rare, to find a business surviving or even thriving with one person managing both aspects to their business.
However, there are plenty of instances when a business begins heading down the wrong path because the owner believes they've got that business sense and they actually don't.
I'd say that's an integral part of the business.
You should not only do the preparation and planning before starting the business...
But you must also make sure you or your partner are able to keep your business on track to meet the financial goals and avoid some financial obstacles that could otherwise sideline your business indefinitely.
