Starting a new company in an economic recession often requires three things: a great idea, a generous small business credit card, and solid advice. Officials at American Express OPEN hope to connect entrepreneurs with all three at a series of seven live events throughout the spring and summer.
The "Small Business Speed Coaching Test Drive" offers attendees the chance to spend a half-hour with experienced volunteer business advisors from SCORE. During one-on-one sessions, advisors discuss crucial topics, such as:
- Managing small business credit card debt
- Building strong vendor relationships
- Recruiting and retaining key staff
- Monitoring small business finances
With financial support from American Express OPEN, live speed coaching events are planned for California, Utah, New York, Oregon, Florida, Illinois, and the District of Columbia. Entrepreneurs can register for free small business coaching at events or at one of 370 local chapters by visiting SCORE.org.
You can compare business credit cards on CardRatings.com.
