 Small Business Center Offers FREE Information to Small Business Owners via HCC Web Site

Halifax Community College Small Business Center (SBC) Director Dick McCormick has created a 10-page guide for small business owners titled, “Small Business Survival in These Troubling Times.” The guide is a compilation of articles from various sources that can help small business owners weather the current economic storm.

Articles include “Shifting into Cost-Cutting Mode, “10 Ways to Cut Business Costs,” “Grow Your Business in Spite of the Slowing Economy,” “Entrepreneurs, It’s Time to Do the Hustle,” “Tough Times Mean You’ll Face Hard Choices,” “Be Smarter Not Just Smaller,” “Starting a Business in a Crowded Market,” The Keys to Competitiveness in the 21st Century,” and “Small Business Owners—‘Pull Up Your Pants’.”

McCormick has also compiled a second helpful guide, “Wikipedia’s Financial Guide to Making it When Things are Tight.” Topics include how to save money, reduce expenses, budget money, live on a structured budget, save money on gas, get out of debt and much more.

Both guides are available free as a download here. Contact McCormick at (252) 536-7272 or e-mail mccormickr@halifaxcc.edu for more details.
