Hiring Your First Employee

Hiring your first employee is a big step for every new business. It’s a process that has many moving parts that all must work together. You have prepared well in advance of when you need the employee to start and answer lots of questions: Can I afford it? What about payroll services? Do I need a job description? What about benefits? Workers Comp? A good place to start is by watching the videos from our recent workshop on Hiring Your First Employee.

Startups Will Be Critical Force
in Fueling Economic Growth

Call us optimistic, but the silver lining out there is that Startups will play an important role in firming up the economy in the months and years ahead. It's the nature of new ventures to fill voids and find new opportunities.

The number of new business filings in Minnesota is holding steady or growing compared to last year. That means feeder system of future growth is still doing its job of creating the next wave of mature businesses.

I remember in the early 1980s when the phrase "Rust Belt" was coined to describe the devastated parts of the industrial north. Steel mills and factories were decimated in that recession.

Books on the coming economic catastrophe began to appear. Home mortgage rates were 16 percent, the prime rate was 21 percent. The end was near. How we'll we ever replace the industries that were collapsing all around?

A little company called MicroSoft struck a deal to provide an operating system to IBM as it launched its first personal computer.

It wasn't a giant company that created the next economic boom. It was a small company. No one saw it coming.
