SCORE Celebrates “National Women in Small Business Month

The United States has more than 11 million woman-owned small businesses, and we celebrate each and every one of them during National Women in Small Business Month in October. Women are starting businesses five times faster than the national average, and they’re making strides in leading industries like healthcare and educational services. Women of color lead the way, starting nearly eight in 10 new woman-owned businesses since 2007. SCORE takes pride in guiding diverse entrepreneurs in all stages of their business journey. Gina Grillo revived and relaunched her small business in 2015, after a Lyme disease diagnosis motivated her to develop a better insect repellant. Grillo Essentials opened more than 30 new...

How to Find Long-Term Financing Through an Online Business Lender

Getting to the next step in your business’s lifecycle is an exciting time for any small business owner. But there will likely come a point (or several) when you’ll need more access to capital before you can continue down the path you want to go. Perhaps you’ve reached a certain point of stability and decided it’s time to start growing — maybe you need more inventory or a large equipment purchase. Maybe you have a few different sources of business debt and are looking to refinance into one simple monthly payment. Or maybe you just need to cover tax obligations and payroll for a short period...

Small Business Owners Optimistic—But Facing Risks

U.S. small and midsized business owners are feeling optimistic—and with good reason. Seventy-two percent of those polled in The Hiscox DNA of an Entrepreneur survey report their companies’ top-line revenues increased over the past year. That's the highest percentage of any country in this annual global survey. But while small business owners in the United States believe their future is bright, they are also facing some challenges that could put their businesses at risk. Here's a closer look at what the survey uncovered. Spreading themselves too thin? Small business owners in the survey aren’t letting the day-to-day challenges of entrepreneurship slow them down. In fact, 26 percent of respondents own...

The Consumer Review Fairness Act & What It Means for Your Business

According to a 2016 Local Consumer Review Survey, 84% of people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation. That’s a staggering amount of trust, and business owners know it. Is it any surprise then that companies have tried to influence what is said about them online? Digital feedback exists along a spectrum of competing interests somewhere between the consumer’s right to be informed and the entrepreneur’s right to protect their reputation and livelihood. For years, this spectrum has been mostly unregulated, a world of fake reviews, anti-disparagement clauses and strategic lawsuits against public participation (SLAPP). On March 14, 2017, the Consumer Review Fairness Act (CRFA) took effect, laying...

8 Ways to Manage Your Time and Multiple Projects

As a small business owner, you must have fallen into the trap of having to juggle many tasks in a limited time. While there is no magic formula to hitting the right balance and managing your time seamlessly, you can improve your time-handling skills to accomplish more tasks on your to-do list. Here are some ways to help you keep everything in check when working on multiple projects at the same time. 1. Make a to-do list before you start your day We get so preoccupied while working on multiple tasks, that we usually tend to undervalue the importance of a to-do list. Although most things in the business...

How Does My Personal Credit Score Impact My Business Loan Application?

It probably doesn’t take long for any business owner who applies for a business loan to discover that their personal credit impacts their ability to qualify, but whenever I talk to business owners it seems that there are some misconceptions and questions many small business owners have regarding what the impact is, what is included in their profile, and what they can do to improve the odds of loan approval and the options available when they’re looking for a small business loan. Small business owners in the United States really have two profiles, their personal credit profile and their business profile. Both profiles play a role...

How to Establish Quality Control Processes

When you think of quality control, you probably think of manufacturing businesses inspecting products for flaws. In reality, quality control processes can be used in all types of businesses, whether they are product-based or service-based, B2B or B2C. Quality control is a key component of a well-run business. A quality control program helps to ensure your small business is delivering a consistent product, service and customer experience. Developing quality control processes allows your business to operate without you, making it easier to expand into new locations, delegate duties and even sell your business when the time comes. Business growth requires careful attention to both dollars and people,...

Summer’s Almost Over. Did You Take Time Off Yet?

Labor Day is fast approaching, and that means summer is almost over. Have you taken a break from your small business yet? Getting away from it all for a vacation is challenging for many Americans, but especially for small business owners who often lack the staff to delegate to you while they're away. Just 57 percent of small business owners in a recent survey by OnDeck Capital say they are vacationing this year, and only 32 percent say they generally make vacation a priority. But taking a vacation—even a short one—can make a huge difference in your productivity, motivation and energy levels after your return. And it might be...
