You’re in a small town; you’re running a business. Did you know your local cooperative extension has an entrepreneurship program to help you? Yes, the cooperative extension service. They’re probably in your county courthouse.
In Oklahoma, the statewide entrepreneurship program includes more than the usual fact sheets. Glenn Muske specializes in home-based and micro-business. Then there is the Robert M. Kerr Food and Agricultural Products Center, supporting value-added food and agricultural processing products in Oklahoma.
The services in your state will be different, customized to your local economy. And of course, the quality of people makes all the difference. So it’s worth checking into.
You can find a small group of entrepreneurship articles and other resources on the national eXtension site.
