Marketing and Digital Media—Journey, Not a Destination

When I started my business in 2004, (yes, I’m dating myself), the concept of having a website was a ‘nice idea’. Small businesses hadn’t fully embraced websites or understood their purpose, what to include, or frankly how to build one. This rapidly changed throughout the decade as all small business owners got to grapple with one [...]

Beth’s Business Blog: Always Be Innovating (ABI)

We’ve all heard stories of small businesses these past many months, about how they’ve pivoted to offer new products and services as a result of the pandemic. Some accidentally stumbled upon entirely new product lines and market opportunities, that had it not been for the crisis, wouldn’t have been discovered. I heard a radio teaser about Dippin’ Dots this [...]

Beth’s Business Blog December 2020

Greetings and Happy Holidays to you all from my dining room table. How our work environments have changed! In gathering my thoughts for our last newsletter of the year, the following phrase comes to mind: “If I knew then what I know now.” Who could have imagined last year at this time, what was about [...]

Beth’s Business Blog: How Does Your Small Business Respond During A Crisis?

Small business owners are problem solvers.  It’s an inherent skill set either learned or acquired as entrepreneurs who aren’t given a road map but must figure out their path through education, asking questions and simply trial and error. As small business educators, the staff at the Miller Business Resource Center teach small business owners [...]

Veteran Everyday Entrepreneur-Richard Brown

We created a special EEPP for veterans, active duty, reserve, guard and spouses called VEEP (Veteran Everyday Entrepreneur Program). We are starting our second course series in January and have had a great response from the veteran and military community about it. The VEEP is based on the EEPP, but with the added advantage [...]

Beth’s Business Blog-Advisory Boards

Recently in our Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses  35 small business owners were asked by a show of hands how many had an advisory board. No one raised their hand. My perception is that small business owners perceive boards as something left to large corporations with fancy board rooms and high-powered connections. No matter the size of [...]

Will Your Baby Grow-Jim Herrin, Director Salt Lake SBDC

To grow, a baby needs lots of nurturing and attention. Raising a child also has lots of challenges and tasks you’d rather not deal with but must (I thought grandpas had a waiver from having to change dirty diapers, but I found last week that’s not true).  However, the results of your efforts in [...]

The Everyday Entrepreneur-Beth’s Business Blog

As mentioned in prior articles, I’m always looking for new ideas or changes I can make to advance our MBRC programs. One of those ideas became a reality after months of grinding on a concept to help create small businesses quickly. After attending a seminar at a professional conference, I began iterating on the idea of [...]

First In Money-Beth’s Business Blog

First Money In If you’re looking to launch your own business, it’s important to know who will be your first money ‘in’.  Your initial answer better be YOU.  I’m still somewhat surprised when I meet a budding entrepreneur and having listened to their idea, ask them how they plan to initially fund their business.  [...]
