Local Business Plans
We have assisted many entrepreneurs starting neighborhood businesses from art galleries to psychological counselling offices and tailor shops. The founders of many of these new businesses have not run their own business before. They often seek answers to questions about marketing and advertising, launch planning and grand openings, financing, book keeping, working capital and/or inventory loans and other matters. We are pleased to assist them in planning for success. Contact Us to get started!
