Here are a couple of quick resources to boost your business, get started, or get your creative juices flowing and come up with some great ideas.

SCORE ( This is a non-profit organization that provides FREE (we love FREE around here) advice and counseling to small businesses.  You can check out the existing resources on their website, e-mail a counselor (they usually get back to you extremely quickly), or set up an appointment to meet with a counselor.  They were there to help in the extremely early developmental stages of

Startup Nation (  Startup Nation is another FREE resource with great articles and a community of experts to help with almost any venture you can dream up.  You can get a lot of ideas and get your ideas critiqued in Startup Nation’s forums.  We have gained valuable insight by getting constructively criticized in the forums.

LOCAL Na8ion (  Last, but not least, is LOCAL Na8ion.  You may have noticed that we’ve mentioned them before.  It’s for good reason.  LOCAL Na8ion falls right in line with what is all about, providing assistance and resources to the small business owner out there who wants/needs to be noticed.  Why run a business if people aren’t going to find you.  “If you build it, they will come”, happens under perfect conditions.  LOCAL Na8ion shows you how to put up your own, easy-to-edit web site AND how to market it, all for (you guessed it) FREE!  Implement some of the strategies that Julian Seery Gude of LOCAL Na8ion talks about and you should see a noticeable increase in your business.

Come on back now ya hear,

“Hi my name is Tim. I live and work in mchenry Il. I build and collect mopar performance cars , I currently own a 72 prostreet roadrunner,and a 73 dodge charger. I love to get out to local cruise nights. Tuesdays at culvers in McHenry. Thursdays down town Crystal lake. Saturdays Dog and Suds in fox lake. I own a record store / guitar shop in McHenry Il. It is called Vinyl Frontier Records. The people that shop there claim it is a pretty cool place. I won’t comment on that since I would consider it to be bragging. We take trade in’s so if you are sick of your records or compact disc’s bring them in and trade em em up for stuff you like. I can get just about anything you want on vinyl also. You know the vinyl record is making a huge come back. I carry Jackson guitars as well as turn tables. I do turn table repair. We also sell cartridges and needles for your system.”

“Chicago’s Point of Contention [theatre company] poses difficult questions, demands truthful answers, and inspires others to do the same. By exploring the conflicts of everyday experience, POC redefines and reinterprets the ordinary. Sibling rivalries, office backstabbing, the two-second gaze between two passing strangers on the street—everything, anything, is ripe for scrutiny.

We encourage audiences to take a magnifying glass to the world. Through provocative and engaging theater, we challenge people to look deeper and ask, “But, why?” Our rationale: whether humorous, serious, life-changing or mundane, the moment we question ourselves, we inevitably shape not only who we are, but who we will become.”

“Hey Champaign-Urbana, Welcome to! was created in 2007 by us, Dan Glazer and Justin Gorrell, when we were roommates here at the University of Illinois. After two years on campus we realized that wed fallen into a routine of eating out at the same few places night after night. We grew tired of the same old same old and decided it was time for a change. We knew that C-U had plenty of dining options to offer, but we had no idea where to find them. Naturally, we turned our search to the internet. With a lack of options, even on the World Wide Web, we decided to take action. It took months of hard work, research, and dedication but it finally paid off to bring you! contains the menu, phone number, hours, and location of every restaurant and bar in Champaign-Urbana!
