For many entrepreneurs, the excitement of starting a new business is tempered by the cold realities of logistical preparations. Tax planning, strategic business plans, legal regulations, zoning permits, and a myriad of other administrative concerns can drain a business owner’s passion for the work. With a little help from experienced sources, entrepreneurs can skillfully manage the administrative concerns of their business and focus more of their energy on building the business they love.
There are many local and state entities that offer services to budding entrepreneurs:
- Colleges and universities often have small business consulting services at their business or law schools. Texas A&M University has started a unique program designed to help military veterans launch businesses.
- Local chambers of commerce, merchants’ associations, and other small business associations offer information, resources, and guides for local business owners. The Small Business Development Center of North Texas is just one of many such entities. When such associations don’t have the specific answers a business owner needs, they almost always know where to find it.
- Statewide programs, such as the Texas Workforce Commission and the Texas State Agency Business Administrators’ Association, can also be a wealth of knowledge for business owners. Some of these agencies are run by the state while others are privately managed. All host a vast expanse of business knowledge and experience.
- For counseling specific to a particular business, many entrepreneurs seek the advice of licensed professionals. Accountants, attorneys, and business professionals can provide specialized advice for tax planning, business plans, due diligence, bookkeeping, and other critical business matters.
