In business it's important to know everything about what you sell or the service you provide. Additionally, it's important to know everything about how to run your business. Consulting experts is all part of business. You probably have an attorney, and CPA. These experts will provide you with their advice. However, at the end of the day it's up to you the business owner to make the final decision.
Educating yourself on your options, or to fully understand the advice you have been given is important and cuts time and expenses in the long run. There are many ways you can do our own research. We can access public library's reference materials, read books on the subject, or use online sources. Whatever option we use to develop our knowledge broadens our education and allows us to be better prepared to make final decisions. Your own research should only be used to broaden your education, support your decision, or to understand the advice you have been given. Don't replace the advice of an attorney or CPA by a self help book. Seek out both the expert and the research to help you make a fully developed and educated decision.
