That’s why I reached out to my town’s business development center for help.
It can be hard trying to start a business for the first time if you don’t have any training or experience. You don’t need a MBA to be a business owner, but business school certainly teaches many of the skills needed to be a successful one. My mother was a business manager for most of her life, but she never went to business school. Instead, she shadowed her parents who were co-running a wildly successful landscaping and land development company. To think that she had a position managing a small pest control company at 19 is crazy, especially knowing she did this in the face of male prejudice and discrimination in the 1970s and 1980s. Between my mother and my grandparents, running a business is in my blood. I wanted to get an MBA, but the programs are expensive. Instead, I started working my way up in the food and hospitality industry because I want to be a restaurateur once I have enough money between savings and business loans. That’s why I reached out to my town’s business development center for help. There are all sorts of services and help a budding young entrepreneur can gain from a quality business development center. I spoke with a representative and they helped me through the process of planning stages for growing my business naturally. They also helped me find locations for a restaurant that are prime for customers and with sufficient parking as well. I would easily recommend that anyone work with a business development center if they’re planning on starting a business of their own.
