Help is out there for small businesses
Running a small business is never easy, and when the economy is struggling it only gets harder.
That's where Christine Pigsley comes in.
Pigsley is associate dean of business and entrepreneurship at Dakota County Technical College. She's also the person in charge of the area's Small Business Development Center, a government-funded office set up at DCTC to help businesses that employ 500 or fewer employees with everything from marketing to balancing the books.
