Resources for Small Business Owners
For most small business owners who are just starting out, or those who have made the decision to scale their business, it can be immensely helpful to have access to the right resources.
There is a plethora of information available today which can sometimes be overwhelming. It’s hard to know where to start and who to turn to for advice and guidance. We’ve put together a handful of helpful guides designed to take the struggle out of starting and growing your small business. Our goal is to arm you with helpful information and resources about the financial side of your business and provide you with the tools and support you need to grow profitably.
For the financial novice, we’ve created a basic glossary of terms that are helpful to know as you navigate the world of small business ownership. We’ll walk you through some of the required financial statements you’ll need to know and some simple jargon you’ll commonly encounter.
In addition, there are a number of local resources that we recommend to our small business clients in Maine. These mentor, lending and certification programs can help you if you’re thinking about starting a business or if you’re looking to take your existing business to the next level.
Technology is perhaps the most important piece of the puzzle because it helps you to automate all of your financial processes, reduces human error, and improves efficiency. It can also save you time and money! With a comprehensive and well-planned technology stack, you’ll set up your business for the ultimate success.
If it simply feels like too much to take on small business ownership alone, then don’t! We’ll introduce you to the idea of an Outsourced CFO and how our expert consultants can work with you as a partner and a guide in moving your business forward.
