We know that running a small business can be difficult, stressful, and time consuming. Finding the time and resources to appropriately market, run, and operate your business can be strenuous. Business owners may wake up one day and realize they have not updated their website in seven years or that they haven't recruited a new client in two months. But where do you get the time and money to fix these problems? Introducing Adopt a Small Business. This new innovative program was designed for the specific purpose of helping small business owners improve upon their business model and bring a little sanity to their lives. Here's how it works:
"The idea is simple: To help a local, small business grow and succeed with the help and expertise of small business experts all working together (think “dream team”). The next step is to have the “adopted” business give back to the program and become an integral part of helping the next “adopted” business prosper. The idea is as basic as you can get."
The business experts/dream team include some great local industry talent, including Local First Arizona member Inline Business Advisors. Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity by applying to be a candidate for the program, any small business can apply! Adopt a Small Business will accept applications May 1st through June 30th. Services for the selected business will begin July 4th, 2013 and last for one year. Click here to apply now!
