Be a small business “mentor.” Save money and time!
The resources available to many small businesses are often limited. We frequently struggle to get more productivity out of every dollar that we, as business owners, invest. There are many ways that we, at Sharn Enterprises, have saved money by using resources available from local community colleges- and you can too!
Here are two examples:
- Internships: Help yourself and a young college student by filling a traditional job with an internship. There are programs available to you that help pay a portion of the intern’s salary. Most interns work “part-time,” so you can fill a needed job with as little as 10 to 12 paid hours per week. These folks are young (but mature), enthusiastic, educated, and eager to learn! You can save yourself money and time, by becoming a small business “mentor”.
- Small business departments: Most of our local colleges have a small business department. These folks have the job of assisting local companies with everything from performing analytic project or process work, marketing assistance, loan preparation advice, or even helping you create a business plan. Most of this work is performed by Senior or MBA level students.
So, if you would like some great free advice, don’t hesitate to contact your local college business office for more information.
