Consultation, Training and Courses


When an unusual business problem arises you often hear the expression “they don’t teach you that in business school.” Frequently, notwithstanding the comprehensive training you receive in a top business school, it helps to lean on experienced advice. For objective insight and to learn to anticipate problems, you might consider your local SCORE office; for information about the non-profit world consider Boardsource. To avoid scams contact the Better Business Bureau and for some quality assistance in developing your business and financial plan as well as your executive summary, trust Business.gov, the Small Business Administration and your local Small Business Development Center for practical advice and experienced advice. These organizations are supplemented by a myriad commercial ventures providing courses involving specific business-related topics such as training to sell on eBay or enhancing your site through search engine optimization. But note that where the course is not offered government sponsored, double-check for accreditation or other indicators of merit.
