Job creation is a very common item on all politicians’ agendas.
However, they will want to know what will be the cost per job created. It will be measured for the number of jobs created and the average cost to create them.
Fortunately, for North Carolinians, there is a Small Business Center located at each of our state’s 58 community colleges to help guide budding entrepreneurs through the steps of considering, planning, developing, opening, and operating a small business.
The NC Community Colleges Small Business Center Network (SBCN) is our state’s largest state-supported small business assistance initiative.
I suspect the financial projections will be the biggest challenge. Third, you need to begin identifying those in the community who support your vision and are willing to put in time and their meager resources to help you.
In many cases, you can expect that many of those who help will want a “piece of the action” in the sense they may want to be on your board of directors or possibly seek employment in the agency when the funds are sufficient for the payroll.
