Start your business

Microbusiness Toolbox was created to help entrepreneurs like you.

Microbusiness Toolbox offers an array of services to help you get started, establish an effective online presence, manage your communications, and set up business management systems.

The Small Business Administration defines a small business as any business employing fewer than 500 people. If you have looked for help, you may already have discovered that the traditional sources of small business advice are designed for much bigger ventures.

As a micro-entrepreneur, you face a set of challenges unique to tiny startups.  You may be working from home, juggling your venture with a day job, and starting on a shoestring.

But you still have to:

  • Develop a business plan
  • Price your product or service correctly
  • Figure out a sales and marketing strategy
  • Manage advertising and publicity
  • Develop an online presence
  • Set up systems for keeping records and managing paperwork.

In other words, you have to be your own expert at everything from bookkeeping to web design to sales.  And all of that while making jam, teaching violin, growing strawberries, or painting landscapes.
