I have been a volunteer for SCORE for nearly ten years. During that time, I learned that small companies have the same problems as large ones and what I learned in my career is helpful to them. That led to writing a newspaper column for small businesses and that led to a book. Basic Business is a collection of over 150 lessons learned over 30 years of management consulting tailored to the small organizations. It is available through local bookstores or online in hard copy or in electronic format.
