Pufferbellies little-known fact #1

Did you know that before we opened Pufferbellies last year, neither Susan nor I had any experience in running a business? It’s true. We learned (and continue to learn) it all from scratch. I bring this up because I want to recommend a great organization called SCORE. It’s a free source of information and advice to anyone wanting to start a small business. They provide counseling, seminars, and all kinds of info that’s available for download right from their website. We took a series of seminars and had a couple of one-on-one sessions with our counselor, Steve. He was a huge help, especially when it came to writing our business plan (which took months and was probably the hardest part of the whole start-up process). If you’ve got an idea for a business percolating in your head, but aren’t sure how to get started, try talking to SCORE.
