Win/Loss ration and small accounts

For those who have small accounts, do you guys have any tips to keep your ratio of wins to losses so you have the most possible wins, with the fewest loses when trying to build the account?

Obviously a larger account can withstand larger drawdowns, and ride out longer trends for equally larger wins. A small account however has very little room to ride through a drawdown, and must win on a significantly larger number of it's trades to keep growing.

It's a subject I covered in the course manual I recently wrote, and I thought it may be a good topic to discuss with the board.
