Small Business Advsory Council

(Ongoing group that meets bi-weekly)

When you decide to go into business for yourself, you are driven by your passion, but a business is more than just the product or service.  Operations, managing employees, marketing and sales can be difficult at times.  When you encounter an issue that you do not really know how to deal with, what do you do?  For most, they make the best decision they can with the knowledge they possess.  However, what if you had a group of other business owners to discuss how they dealt with similar issues?  Now you have multiple different perspectives of solutions for you to consider, allowing you to implement a solution that is best for you and your business.
