How to bring your small business idea to life

If you’ve dreamed of being your own boss and being a small business owner, you’re not alone: More than 500,000 small businesses are started each year, each an idea brought to life by people like you.

So what would it take to turn your light bulb idea into your own business? Turns out the best advice is to plan ahead, get help, and then do it!

Remember: You’re not in this alone. Every business benefits from a team of supporters. Reach out to professionals like bankers, accountants, lawyers and consultants, or folks who have been there before. With a little help and your own initiative, small business success is within reach.
