I have a friend who is taking the plunge and opening a new business. Sales people from Yellow Pages, Yelp, Coupon Mailers and others are circling like sharks on a wounded seal. The best thing you can do before opening your checkbook is opening you address book. Find a mentor… or contact your local Small Business Development Center before learning the hard way!
