There are a myriad of sources entrepreneurs can go to for help. The following is a list of resources I have found particularly helpful:

  • Small Business Administration
  • SCORE (Society of Retired Executives)
  • Local University Business Development Centers
  • Local Chambers of Commerce
  • Social Media Entrepreneur Groups
  • Entrepreneurs you know and respect
  • Industry lobbying groups
  • Professional associations for your industry
  • Local Bar Association

The source of help that will be best for you depends upon your industry. It is important for you to compile  a list such of this so that you have names, addresses and phone numbers at your fingertips so that when you need help you can immediately start asking for help. Most people are a little frazzled and out of sorts when problems occur.  Some even resort to panic if the problems are big enough. This is why having all the contract information for several sources of help is a critical part of business operations.

An important part of having places to go for help is knowing when you need help. This is a crucial component in the process as well. The times when an entrepreneur needs help will vary with each individual. The following is a list of some occasions when entrepreneurs may find it useful to get help from an outside source:

  • your business is having problems getting or keeping clients
  • despite your business’ best efforts you are not able to make a profit
  • a competitor steals a trademarked idea or practice
  • your business wants to expand operations but don’t know quite how to do so
  • your business is having problems retaining quality employees
  • your business gets sued

Every business needs help on occasion, it is important to know where to get it and when to ask for help. When you need help, get help early in the process, as early as possible, do not wait for things to hit rock bottom. So, the question for you this Thrilling Thursday is, do you have a ready source of help for when your business needs assistance?
