Our Small Business Blog

Small Business Blog

Having found your way to this blog, you’re probably wondering: Is this worth my time? Will I get anything useful out of this? Well, we think so. You will be gaining first-hand advice and content across a broad swath of topics from Michigan small business consultants with decades of experience working with early-stage and startup companies. If you have an issue, we’ve probably seen it. 

What to Expect from Us. We are here to educate, advise and provide small business help. Every month we will bring you articles about particular small business issues as well as commentary on a related contemporary business issue. All this will take the form of tips and advice, success/case studies, interviews, resources guides, etc.

What We Expect from You. This blog is intended to be a two-way street for the benefit of ALL small business owners, so be engaged. Provide us with feedback, comments and questions by emailing us at marketing@michigansbdc.org. We want to know what we are doing well and what is killing you, what you want to learn more about and what your own experiences are.
