Besides a solid business plan and a healthy dose of hard work, the biggest hurdle to conquer is apprehension. If you have a business plan in place, it is a matter of making sure that it is actually implemented and that the right people are involved in the process. Luckily, there are many organizations, including the state government, that can help point you in the right direction. The Department of Economic Development and Tourism (DEDT) is a great place to start. Among its many services, the Department of Small Business Services (DSBS) can provide assistance with small business licenses, licenses and permits, training, and more. If you have a small business, it is a good idea to visit their website for a complete list of services they provide. The state government also provides a small business directory which contains a handy list of business contacts who can help you with the rest of your business needs. The Department of Small Business Services can be contacted via telephone or email. They can help you with a myriad of small business issues, from obtaining a business license to improving your business etiquette.
