There is a annual program offered to artists in Humboldt County called "ARTISTS-IN-FLIGHT". A potential candidate presents their tax information and a project outline, business acumen, or lack thereof, ...and each is considered on a personal needs basis. It is federally funded. I have been attending the courses and so far, it has been a very positive experience.
In addition we are being encouraged to take advantage of the Small Business Development Center's regular menu of free workshops available to the Humboldt Community.
I have had personal coaching by the staff and I think they are wonderful. I find a distinct difference in the manner they conduct themselves and how many local small businesses conduct their businesses. I think SBDC is an excellent model.
