Growing Your Small Business: What’s Next?
Tuesday, May 30, 2017
Most people don’t realize that approximately 98 percent of Georgia companies are considered small businesses according to the Georgia Department of Labor (source:
). Even though the state is home to many world-class companies, it’s small businesses that keep thousands of Georgians employed and help the Peach State prosper.
Recently, the Georgia Department of Economic Development announced that Georgia was once again selected as the Number 1 state in the nation for the best business climate for the fourth year in a row by
magazine. Small businesses contribute to that attractiveness as Georgia continues to be a great place to start and grow a new business.
Did you launch a small business in the last few years? Wondering what’s next? There are excellent resources available to small business owners from start-ups to long-standing companies. Organizations throughout the state offer information, classes, and opportunities to help you grow your business regardless of what stage you’re in. Check out some of these local offerings:
Local chambers and business associations provide much more than networking opportunities (although those are important too). Look for classes that provide useful information about taxes, social media, etc. geared toward busy business owners.
The Small Business Development Center offers additional guidance. They have locations across Metro Atlanta and the State to provide in-depth educational opportunities for start-ups as well as small business owners looking to take their business to the next level. Continuing education classes are also offered in a variety of industries.
The Small Business Administration also provides classes and volunteers who work with business owners to help you navigate business decisions and learn how to run it efficiently and successfully. The SCORE program of the SBA matches business owners with experienced mentors who will provide one-on-one mentoring, online advice, and workshops.
As a business owner, it makes sense to look for new ways and opportunities to grow your business and utilize the resources available to you. Of course,
Barter Company is also here to help. We can help you analyze your cash flow and advise you about how barter can help you manage day-to-day cash expenses. Most importantly, remember that learning new skills will help you determine your company’s direction and maximize growth.
