Oliver MilmanToday on StartupSmart, we outline a few home truths for budding entrepreneurs who have a rather rose-tinted view of going it alone.

As serial entrepreneur Tom McKaskill explains, it’s not until you launch your venture that you become aware of the many hurdles you have to face, from dealing with the taxman to retaining staff.

If you have yet to start your business, make sure you read McKaskill’s 10 harsh truths of entrepreneurship to see what really lies in store.

Elsewhere, we have a round-up of the web’s best business articles in Weekend Reads and mentor James Omond helps out a reader who is in dire need of a mediator.
