What We Do

Small Business
Services & Resources

There is plenty to worry about when starting and running a small business. Why go at it alone? Sure, you can register with one of many Legal Services – most of the time, it ends there! Our Team offers professional guidance and support from registration to the next level. During your one-on-one consultations, our Certified Business Consultant will walk you through steps and valuable resources to build and/or manage your business to the next level. Yes! You will receive more than a packet of information with a “To Do” list – we will take “actionable steps” to work with you to complete all the steps and check off all the boxes. Get ahead of your competitors!

**Let’s Talk Business consultants do not offer legal, tax advice, or financial advice. Please consult with an attorney for legal guidance about which business structure makes sense for your business and what State and local rules and regulations apply. We encourage you to talk with a CPA or accountant to better understand your local, state, and federal tax liability requirements.
