Managing the day-to-day operations of a small business can be difficult. As a website design company, our main focus is to deliver websites that achieve results for our clients. But, in order to run a successful business, we must also keep up with everything from the latest marketing trends to changes in health care and employment laws. At times, trying to manage it all can feel overwhelming. So, it’s important to remember that there are many free and low-cost resources available that can be a great help for your small business.
The Small Business Administration website, sba.gov, is a great place to find information on how to start and successfully manage a business. There is information on employment regulations, permits and licensing as well as information on how to fund your big ideas. There are also frequent webinars on a variety of topics. The SBA also partners with local educational services to provide resources in your area. Small Business Development Centers offer free mentoring, training and consulting services. And, with more than 10 locations in Colorado alone, chances are there is a center near you.
