If you’re an entrepreneur or someone looking to buy a small business or even someone who currently owns a small business I have a few questions for you. Please don’t take them the wrong way, please only take them in the spirit that they are intended.
- How much do you know about running a business?
- How much do you know about marketing your business to help it grow and prosper?
Well, surprisingly, many newer aspiring business owners and some who have been added for a while may be a bit challenged by some of the basic tenets or principles of operating a business.

His name is Jim Griggy, he is a business advisor for the Small Business Development Center at the Summit Medina Business Alliance in Akron Ohio.
