LIBRARIES

Many libraries have at least one free computer for patrons to use. Ask the Librarians for information or advice. Tell them about your business. Remember, people ask them for advice too! And check BULLETIN boards for information. They're a great place to put your business card or brochure, too.
FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS

If you do not TELL the people you know you're looking for information or referrals, then they'll never know...ya know!!! Let everyone in know you're starting a business...and watch all the free advice come in!
OTHER BUSINESS OWNERS

Contact other business owners that you know. Do I hear lunch anyone? Ask for advice, referrals, and their business cards. Start a REFERRAL book of local business owners. Don't forget to contact owners who do the same work as you, but who work in a different state, region, or county. After all, they might be more apt to share their secrets of success with you!!
