Starting a New Business? You Can Never Learn Too Much!
What if you could get advice from someone who had successfully run a business of their own, get online lessons about marketing, increasing sales and mentoring?
Better yet, what if you could get these services at no cost?
Well you can.
There is a wide variety of free resources available to small business owners.
SCORE stands for the Service Corps of Retired Executives. This offshoot of the SBA (see below) offers free counseling to small business owners.
You can also attend SCORE meetings available at hundreds of locations around the country.
Small Business Association
In addition to providing small business loan guarantees, the SBA also offers lots of helpful resources, including online training, and help with business plans.
MoreBusiness is jam packed with resources and tips specifically for small business owners and entrepreneurs.
In addition to business plans, marketing plans, templates and business advice, the site also has an extensive library of helpful articles, and the blog you are reading now.
Getting Valuable Information
With each of the resources listed above, you will find information on preparing yourself to qualify for business credit, how to become a freelancer, sales and marketing and much more.
Because the Internet is becoming the norm for doing business, Internet entrepreneurs will find MoreBusiness.com particularly helpful.
Business Resources for the Entrepreneur
Whether you take advantage of SCORE's live counseling with a retired executive, or visit on of the other business sites to learn how you can grow your small business, make sure you take advantage of every learning opportunity.
It can mean the difference between having a successful small business or not.
