Business organization helps entrepreneurs
A small business startup group in one New York community is trying to help entrepreneurs find success, despite their lack of resources.
The Waterdown Daily Times reports that Etta J. Smith caught the attention of a local business group organizer thanks to her homemade aprons, potholders, tote bags and clothing, selling her items at craft shows and other places around the country. Smith caught the attention of the Small Business Startup Group, co-founded by Sandra R. Maine, and was given a small grant from the group in order to help expand her business. Maine, who herself runs a small soap business, said that her organization looked forward to helping.
"When people operate a business from their home they don't have the overhead they would have if they rent someplace," Mrs. Maine said in an interview with the newspaper. "If it goes really well then Etta can take a bigger step."
There has been other news for small businesses looking to get help in developing. The News-Press reports that Edison State College in Florida will host the Taking Care of Business workshop in the coming days.
