This next program covers a topic that is critically important with the start-up process of a small business and can also be beneficial to existing businesses that may be ready to expand. After you have proven the feasibility of your concept, limited your risk, analyzed your financials, and developed a marketing plan – how do you package all of this information together so you can really get your business started?
