Small Business Tool Kit

Starting a business or operating an established business can be challenging; however, it can also be very rewarding.  An entrepreneur not only needs to know his or her specific trade, but also a number of other areas.  The Small Tool Kit can help.
Obviously the "small business tool kit" can not address every issue of importance to a small business, but it is an attempt to collect resources that can be used by small businesses.  If you know of anything, non-commercial in nature, that you think would add value to the tool kit please email or call Community Developer at (231) 832-7397.
