I recently met with Michael Franz of the Washington Small Business Development Center (WSBDC) in Seattle. The WSBDC works with small businesses and entrepreneurs to address roadblocks or challenges in starting and growing businesses. The organization provides free counseling to clients and plays an active role in helping the business reach pre-determined goals. The counseling is provided in a wide area of business matters from business plan review to assisting with obtaining loans and guidance with intellectual property and technology matters. The WSBDC has counselors all over Washington State so seek them out for guidance. An outsider’s perspective often helps clarify the next steps to a problem.
