From my research I have found two unique websites that offer very promising information if helping start up a business. The first of which is the SBA's official website. Right from the get-go when you enter the site, you are greeted with "Need help starting or growing a business? Learn more." You can immediately click on the 'Learn More' button and it will bring you to the Learning Center (SBA.gov). Here one can enjoy online training, watch videos, have chat sessions via threads, or find content through the choice of all three categories. There is also local assistance offered by counseling, mentoring, and training from an SBA District Office, SCORE Chapter, Small Biz Development Center or Women's Biz Center in your area (SBA.gov). If you truly serious of starting a small business, you can sign up for their newsletter and receive email updates to help maintain information throughout the business world.
The second I found is Entrepreneur.com (Entrepreneur). This site has a wider arrangement of information for the business world. It is more geared towards being an entrepreneur. On the main page, numerous links of strategies and topics of tips and stories can be found. Of each, personal and professional views are told. By clicking the Startups tab near the top of the home page, you are brought to the "Starting a Business" page (Entrepreneur). Here you can find "How-To Guides", startup basics, and even startup kits to help your business bloom. I like this site because you have the ability to read others’ success stories and their own personal tips and opinions on different aspects of the business world. Between the two of these sites, I feel that any individual would be able to start up a business with little-to-no problems.
