Step-by Step to Grow Your Business ... The Process . . .

When you call for help, we take appropriate steps to insure that we serve you well whether that includes an immediate appointment, or making suggestions for some preliminary work on your part. We need to make sure you have all the information you need and have taken the appropriate initial steps to insure you're ready to start or expand a business.

Step 1 -- Fill out our website Contact Form  with a brief description of the business concept you’re considering, or a description of your existing business. This will help us decide what we need to do first to best serve you.  Each client's needs are different, and our initial analysis of what you need helps us to avoid wasting your time or ours.  We want you to work with the right consultants, and get correct information and services for your business in a timely fashion.

What Can Small Business Development Centers Do For Small Businesses?

Where Do I Start To Create Or Grow My Business?


One-on-one consultations to assist business owners as they grow, as well as helping aspiring entrepreneurs develop business plans to prepare to find financing and get their ventures open for business.  Whether just starting out or looking for advice on expansion possibilities, we invite you to  participate in the business workshops we offer to benefit start-ups, business owners, CEOs and the companies they run. 

We have workshops on starting a business, complying with taxes and legal requirements, franchising, marketing, or explain how we can help you get an online presence on a shoestring budget.  Browse our site now to find many answers about opening or operating a small business.

Ask any of our clients and they’’ll tell you that the SBDC offers the best  business assistance you can get ..... and with the exception of some  workshops they may have attended, or having a start-up website built, it didn’t cost them a dime!


Don’t just jump into opening or expanding a business!  That’s a recipe for failure!  Analyze your situation, plan a strategy, get advice, and then go forward with confidence.  Talk to us ... it’s free courtesy of the Small Business Administration.  Helping small businesses is what we do!


Whatever your business interest or dreams for starting or growing a business, we have consultants who will help you with everything from planning to marketing to learning new technologies to keep up.  Call for a consultation today!
