Small Businesses Often Need Help, But Where Can They Get It?

Posted on May 13, 2015

Payroll servicesIt is no secret that small business owners often find themselves in a situation where they could really benefit from the sagacious advice of another business owner or business professional who has more experience. Unfortunately, it is also no secret that far too often such helpful advice is never received – often because the small business owner is not sure where to get it from. These businesses need what we as individuals almost always need at one point or another in our lives – the help of a mentor.

The help of a mentor can make all the difference in the world when it comes to small businesses and their owners. In fact, a recent study carried out by The UPS Store reported that businesses that receive a few hours of mentoring each week effectively double their chances of having their businesses survive for five years or more. This translates into the fact that mentoring helps to allow at least 70% of all small businesses to survive for more than five years. Like we said, without these types of resources, only half as many businesses would last as long, and the national economy would be worse off on account of it.

Here at abc Payroll, a group of payroll specialists in Chelmsford, MA who provide payroll services to our clients, we believe in the entrepreneurial spirit which drives small business owners to take one of the greatest risks of their lives for the sake of their dreams – that is, the risk of opening a small business. We also believe strongly in those fine organizations which make it their mission to provide the much needed mentoring and other small business aid programs. One of the best such organizations is SCORE, which is sponsored by the Small Business Administration. SCORE offers free mentoring connections, as well as free or inexpensive small business workshops on a wide variety of topics. Other great resources include the Small Business Development Centers, (SBDC), Women’s Business Centers, and the Veteran’s Outreach Business Centers.

In the spirit of our appreciation for these great organizations and the fine work that they do, we as a payroll company would also like to do our part. We provide payroll services to companies of all sizes, big or small, and each one receives the same devotion and attention from our knowledgeable and deeply experienced staff. Our clients know that they can call us with any questions or concerns, and we will do our best to help them make all of their goals a reality. To reach this end, we even have a page on our website devoted to valuable resources for business owners that relate to payroll services, tax responsibilities, and other areas of interest.
