Smart business owners seek information

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Recently the Brainerd Lakes Chamber hosted a nationally recognized economist who told us he and other experts feel the U.S. is slowing coming out of the most recent recession. Smart business owners seek information like this from a variety or sources so they can react in a timely manner to trends within their trade area and within their industry. Identifying trusted sources of information is an important part of managing your business. Those sources can include traditional news outlets but should also include participation in Chamber type events, monitoring industry publications and blogs, and talking with you customers and suppliers. Keeping aware of you business environment will help you effectively manage your business resources. The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is part of the Business and Industry (B&I) Center at Central Lakes College. For more information on the SBDC program visit or call us at (218) 855-8140.
