Services and Resources

In addition to educational training programs, we provide confidential, no cost, one-on-one consulting (by appointment only) to owners of for-profit businesses in Georgia.

If you are starting a new business, before seeing a consultant we require a rough draft of your business plan or for you to attend one of our Starting A Business classes.

If you don’t have a business plan yet, we recommend using this online template or download and fill-out the workbooks below.

We understand that you won’t have all the answers right now, just get everything that you know about your new business out of your head and onto paper and we can help you fill in the missing pieces. After you have completed the business plan (or workbooks) or taken one of our Starting A Business courses, please call 706-542-7436 to inquire about scheduling with a consultant in Athens.
