I had lunch with Sharon Oxendine last week.  Sharon is an amazing friend and is passionate about small business and every client she serves.  Sharon is the director of the Women’s Business Center in Asheville as well a regional director of Mountain BizWorks. 

What is Mountain BizWorks?  I am always surprised at the number of small business owners who are not aware at the level of assistance that is available to them in their own community.  Mountain BizWorks is a small business incubator.  The cornerstone of Mountain BizWorks is the Foundations class.  What is the Foundations class?  We break down the business plan into seven weeks and help small business owners understand and write their business plan.  The business plan should start at thirty pages which is daunting and difficult if it is something that you have never done before. 

Of course, I believe that Mountain BizWorks is the best in the world at helping small business owners.  Our Asheville small business incubator offers many other services such as business coaching and professional assistance from lawyers, accountants, marketing experts and a wealth of other knowledge is always prepared to assist.

Look around your community for resources to assist you in your small business.   Your community may have a SCORE office or you might be lucky enough to live in Western North Carolina and be able to work with Mountain BizWorks.  There might be a similar small business incubator that is waiting to help you!  If you ask for help, you will be amazed at all of the people who want to see you succeed.  Just Ask!

Look around your community for similar resources to assist you in your small business.  Sometimes, just another set of eyes is all it takes to shift your direction and pave the way for prosperity.
