Virtual Mentors

A myriad of convenient business counseling awaits you online. Here's where.

In the days before the Internet became so popular, people starting businesses often asked attorneys and accountants for help, talked with counselors at the Small Business Administration (SBA) or Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), took a course or two at a local college or sought advice from other people who already ran successful businesses. All these resources are still available, but, thanks to the ever-expanding world of technology, now you can also obtain advice from online services and the Internet. In fact, you can get help from volunteer groups, government agencies, your online peers and even commercial firms--all without ever leaving your office.
