Do you have a small business dream... or nightmare?
Try the Small Business Reference Center™!  This site provides up to date information on relevant topics from starting a company, operations management and sales to growing or rescuing a business.

The user-friendly interface guides users through small business and entrepreneurial subject areas, common business types, a help and advice section, and provides information on how to create business plans that lead to successful funding. Business videos provide critical information for business owners: interviews, ‘lessons learned’ features, lectures and ‘how to’ videos help foster success in all aspects of managing a business. A collection of state-specific resources supports the researcher with demographic data and other local information. The database contains nearly 400 full-text periodicals and over 450 full-text reference books.
