In five years of working as a certified business mentor with SCORE, Raj Tumber has seen his share of entrepreneurs with growing pains. He’s counseled a wide range of business owners through the roller coaster ride that has been the local economy.
As that economy improves, he said, the most frequent headaches of small businesses are:
▶ Business licensing hassles;
▶ Growth management;
▶ Real estate leasing;
▶ Insurance costs.
“Those are definitely common ones I hear,” Tumber said.
