The Small Business Center at CCC provides workshops, seminars, counseling, information, and referral services for small business owners and operators in Cleveland County. These are some frequently asked questions that SBC clients ask: Do I need a business plan? How much cash do I need to start and operate my business? What should I consider when planning my cash flow? Do I need a loan? How and where do I get a loan? What is Start-up (or “Seed”) Stage Financing? What information and documents must I have to get a loan? What will I do with my money? When should I hire employees, invest in my business, or pay off debt? When will I be able to pay myself? What experience do I have in running a business and what are my strengths? What experience and knowledge do I need to be successful in my business? What resources are available to help me be successful in my business? What is the climate for my type of business in my geographic location? What have I not considered that I should be thinking about and planning for? If you can’t answer all of these questions with confidence don’t be discouraged. The Small Business Center is here to help you plan, execute, and grow a successful business. Call or email to schedule a free and confidential review of your business plans and needs.
