Episode 28: The Business of Starting Your Own Business

IMG_8326Have you ever thought about opening your own business? Are you curious about what it takes, how you should plan, who you should go and talk to? This episode is for you! We take a tour through what new business startups need to get together before launching down the entrepreneurial path and the resources available in Colorado Springs to help you get started.

We also talk a bit about having employees, where to turn for startup capital and our own experiences running businesses. In the episode we mention two great organizations for new businesses: the Small Business Development Center where you can get FREE counseling on everything from Quickbooks to contracts, and SCORE, providing volunteers and mentoring to business owners. We also highly recommend checking out Peak Startup, Epicentral Coworking and 1 Million Cups for great networking, mentorship, and pitch practicing. Check them out and tell us about your business adventures!
