Are you around others who have started a business that was successful? Are you ready to get the help you need to get started? Are you really? How about contacting your local SBA office and getting a SCORE mentor to help you start and see it through. Their services are free. www.score.org and www.sba.gov
Have you ever considered the services that they provide? From start to finish the services of both organizations are there to give you the resources, and skill sets needed to be in business. Whatever type you choose. Support is what is needed when you are getting started. By trying to do things on your own without any help? Don’t let enthusiasm get the best of you, go to those who have done it before you.
A success partner is the best investment that you can make when starting a business. These organizations have business owners and those who have retired that are willing to share what they know. And, they want to see you succeed. Success breeds success. They can give you help with everything from business plans, raising capitol, finding legal and financial services, etc… There are fantastic opportunities to grow ( seminars, webinars, courses, and one on one coaching ), practical solutions, goal setting activities, and help in crafting your vision for your company. You might not even know where to start, and they can help you with that as well.
How would you like to have a mentor free of charge? SCORE mentors are there through the SBA just for this purpose. They are there for you, and for as long as you need them. Whether your business is flourishing or failing, they’re there for you. They want to help you succeed and have the know how to do it.
From start to finish they can not only help you launch, but foresee any problems that may arise before you do. Why? Because they’ve been there. Things that are new to you, aren’t new to them. They have really been there done that. So, why not learn from their mistakes? It will save you time and money. Money you can recover, time you can not. That’s a sobering thought.
If you’re really ready to get a business off the ground, then I challenge you to start with these 2 organizations. That’s what they’re there for. Why waste time trying to learn all the ropes, when someone can hand them to you? And help you to use them, the right way. If you can get the help without having to send out a search party, do it.
