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. Two ways that we, at Sharn Enterprises, have found to save money is to use the resources available from your local community colleges!
- Internships: Help yourself and a young college student by filling a job with an intern. Programs are available to you that help pay a portion of their salary. Most of the interns work “part time” so you can fill a needed job with as little as 10 to 12 paid hours a week. These folks are young (but mature) enthusiastic, educated, and eager to learn! Save yourself some money and time, be 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. Much of this work is done by Senior or even MBA level students.
So, if you would like some great free advice, contact your local college business office for more information.
