Various public and nonprofit services can connect you to advisors with personal experience running a small business, including SBA Small Business Development Centers and Pacific Community Ventures’ free BusinessAdvising.org platform. It connects small businesses around the country with pro bono experienced business advisors who offer advice on a range of issues, including HR, marketing, IT, operations, and other small business concerns.
