This score is not a reflection of your personal business abilities, but an attempt to provide an objective evaluation of your current business status.
You've thought about having a business--perhaps you've even made a phone call or two or everyone you know says you have a great idea--but you haven't done much in the way of concrete development. First, you'll need to be sure your idea is a good one and learn more about customers, competition and capital. Having taken this assessment, you're now aware of what will be involved and perhaps you've decided that business ownership is not the right choice for you at this time. If you decide you want to explore a bit more, the SBDC can help by offering a number of FREE resources and training classes. Refer to the "Next Steps" guide sheet for detailed instructions, resources and additional information to get you moving in the right direction.
