When an individual starts their business, they sometimes forget the small, but important things, for instance forms that every starting up business should have (like Purchase Orders, Invoices, Receipts), beginning marketing materials (some small businesses only need a few things to start off with, when it comes to Marketing, there may not be a need for some businesses to get TV time, or set up a huge billboard, or do a huge direct mail marketing project), or even office supplies (like sticky notes, scissors, highlighters, etc.), and that’s where hiring a small business consultant can be a good idea.
You see it is the small business consultants job, to ensure your small business has everything you would need (training manuals, correct branding (meaning all of your documents, email signatures, emails, working templates, etc.), and that is why you need one, because they would either help you figure out everything you would need, or they would end up getting it all for you.
Below are some office supplies that a new small business should have. Remember, this is just a beginning list, feel free to take away, or add to the list as you deem necessary:
