Not enough planning prior to the start up. I think the most important thing is planning. You should carefully outline the steps that you should be taking as you are starting up. You must be ready with few alternatives too just in case Plan A doesn't work.

Poor management – Examples of poor management are an inability to listen, micro-managing – AKA lack of trust, working without standard or systems, poor communication, and lack of feedback.

One common reason why business fails is using the funds for personal matters. You should always remember that your business funds is not your personal bank account. You should treat it separately and as if you don't own the money.

I believe that every new business that failed has its own reasons why it happened, but there are some common mistakes newcomers usually make. I think that knowing those mistakes might help to escape them and to work on necessary things before starting a new business to prevent its failure.
