Hello, I'm meeting my SCORE advisor today at 1:00 and plan to ask about;<br><br>
drafting a business plan<br>
small business loans<br>
anything else I'm missing that might be helpful to bring up?
Hi there! Congrats on taking an important step in starting your new business!! I hope this isn't too late!<br><br>
SCORE was very helpful in getting me started! The things I also asked about were:<br><br>
Business entity (S corp, LLC, etc.)<br><br>
That's a great list! Your head will be spinning when you leave, for sure!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I bought a CD from SCORE that had a an excel workbook on it for doing a sales analysis. It had maybe 15 different sheet in the workbook--start-up costs, expenses, projected sales, cost of goods, etc. It was invaluable. I know it was created by a local SCORE advisor in Portland, so I don't know if it is available everywhere. If you can get your hands on it, you should.<br><br>
Edited to add: Oh shoot! That was yesterday, eh? Oh well, you could still look into it.
