The Small Business Administration is dedicated to helping small businesses succeed. They provide online trainings covering many business topics and links to small business counseling, mentoring and training located around the country.

Business Plan Basics Training - in collaboration with NxLevel and Nebraska EDGE.
A business plan will give lenders and financial backers a full picture, give a "road map" for a future direction, help anticipate capital and equipment needs, and help you measure progress and anticipate problem areas.
Primary topics covered in 5 training sessions include Marketing, Customer Relations, Financial Management, Advertising/Promotion and Goal Setting. Click for more.
