Ten Tips on How to Start a Small Business

What help will you need to get started?

Decide what you need to learn before you start your small business. Find experts and develop a timetable for gathering the knowledge and resources you need.

The government can help. Check out the Small Business Administration and the Internal Revenue Service online or at local offices. There are various divisions in each agency that offer information and advice for small business owners.

Look for training programs for entrepreneurs in your area or online. Even if working for someone else has made you an expert, you’ll find helpful ideas and save yourself a few headaches.

You may want help with marketing plans, a logo or other graphic art, your communications system, computers and a web site, or the design of your new work space.
