We offer Free and confidential business mentoring sessions on a non-discriminatory equal opportunity basis to both prospective and established small business owners and managers from volunteer counselors with extensive business expertise. Mentoring sessions are normally one hour long. At the first session, the counselor will work to understand your business issues and then provide appropriate suggestions and guidance. Very few clients get all their answers in only one session. We will meet with you as frequently and for as long as you find meeting helpful. You can meet with a counselor (and not necessarily the same one) as often as you like for planning or any operation, management, or other business issues that may arise in the future. (We like to think of it as "free business mentoring for life!")
