Igniting the entrepreneurial spirit as the first step on a grand expedition.

As an entrepreneur and business person for over 30 years, I know that every trail begins with that one promising starting point; every business starts with a vision, a passion, and a drive.

My first restaurant was all my savings, plus I still found myself at the business end of a jackhammer knocking out concrete flooring for plumbing. I didn't budget enough for all the construction needed so I worked a deal with the General Contractor to put me on the “build” team.

Yet, like any expedition, the path of entrepreneurship can be riddled with twists, turns, and unforeseen obstacles. Navigating this terrain without a map or a trusty compass can be daunting. That's why we began The Business Trailhead. Our goal is to provide you with information that answers questions and acts as a guidepost to stimulate you toward additional research, and, yes, even motivates you to start out or even continue your pursuit. Because when the entrepreneurial spirit finds its direction, we all reach new summits together.

Just like you, we've been (and still are adventurers) in the entrepreneurial world!

We've geared up and set out on these challenging “small business treks,” feeling the burn of every elevation gain while pushing to pause at every scenic vista. It's this firsthand experience that inspired us to set up camp here at The Business Trailhead to combine our passions. Whether it's to offer you a guiding landmark, ignite a spark of inspiration, or help you chart the path to your dream venture, we're here, gathering information and providing content and information.

This type of burning passion is more than just a personal venture; small businesses are the lifeblood that courses through the veins of our economy. They spark innovation, paint the canvas of commerce with vibrant hues of creativity, and chart a course toward personal freedom. When individuals embark on their entrepreneurial hikes, they aren't just working—they're exploring, learning, and growing. They become adventurers and trailblazers, carving out pathways that resonate with fulfillment and purpose, weaving wealth from their passions, and enriching the world around them.

Your ambition is the compass that points you forward, and you couldn't have chosen a better base camp. We here at The Business Trailhead are cheering you on. We're not just admirers; we're fellow travelers celebrating the indomitable spirit within us all.

Glad you're here!
