7 October 2016
We were joined in the studio by Christine Kriz, the Executive Director for the Lord Fairfax Small Business Development Center. We talked about all the free services they offer to small business owners as well as those thinking of starting a new business. The LFSBDC has four offices serving the counties of Frederick, Clarke, Warren, Shenandoah, Rappahannock, Fauquier, Culpeper and Madison. Their core programs include small business seminars, startup counseling, marketing counseling, QuickBooks assistance, mystery shopper programs and mentoring. They also work with people seeking bank loans, SBA guarantee loans, and state loans through Virginia Asset Financing Corporation. In addition to the loan application process, they work with all types of business registration questions, tax forms, SBA assistance and writing business plans.
We also talked about our upcoming food drive: Camping For Hunger to benefit C-Cap of Front Royal/Warren County.
