Business Resources

 
Creative Finesse has revamped operations.  The business support services previously offered are no longer available.  This site remains to provide business resources and information for you.

Thank you!

When touting the phrase, "
Business support services from start to Finessed",
we must then back it up in a variety of ways.  We want the business operator to know that we mean what we say and that we have gone to many lengths to do what we say.  Often the business person is on the brink of a breakthrough and needs a little push to get them over to the other side.  We like to offer a friendly push as often as we can. 


With that in mind, this section of our site is dedicated to the little pushes in the business world.  We will continue to build upon this section as more content becomes available.  These little offerings may be just the thing needed to answer a question or to fill a void.  We certainly hope we can be of assistance.  If you have a comment or would like to suggest additional items for this section, please email us at
customercare@creativefinesse.com.  We'd love to hear from you!

Thank you!
Considering Incorporating?  There are always hard      questions that go along with this decision and it isn't an easy one to make.  There are benefits and disadvantages and you need to be aware of these as you contemplate taking this important step.  We do not have all the answers, and we cannot make the decision for you.  We cannot even advise you on how to proceed, you need a professional person beyond our scope of expertise for that.  But we can shed a little light on the process for you and maybe help you arrive at the harder questions you need to ask before proceeding.  And then we can assist you with your filing.  Review our piece, The Pros and Cons of the Corporation, by Creative Finesse, that is based on much research in this area.  We offer low cost complete incorporation filing for you.
 
Desire a Web Presence?  Many people are still somewhat in the dark when it comes to the internet and the wonderful benefit of having a presence on the web.  That is a thought that is very understandable.  It is a complex "web" that is woven in such a way that the layman can and often does become lost.  We have prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding having a webpage presence, and also are pleased to share an article that highlights this as well.  You may find the answers you seek in these two items.
Need a Word or its Meaning?   This may seem like a simple given, but oftentimes it is something that slips by us.  When writing we may come upon a word that we think is correct, but are just not certain.  If that is the case, then it is best to err or the side of caution and look it up.  I like to use Merriam-Webster Online.  It has a  dictionary and also a thesaurus - tools that a writer cannot exist without. 
 
California Business Laws Confusing?   You can say that again!  When in doubt, look it up.  I visit the California Secretary of State website quite often.  Many valuable tools and resources are listed here in plain sight and in laymen's terms.  You just have to dig sometimes, but eventually you get there.
Have a Great & Unique Idea?  Then maybe you are considering a patent or trademark.  This is sometimes the best first decision you can make - to protect your investment.  But how do you do it?  Well for starters it is a good idea to review the information provided at the US Patent and Trademark Office.  If after reviewing you still cannot make heads or tails of the information there, rest assured that you are not alone.  Often you wonder if after reviewing all that is listed there, if it is worth your time, effort and also money to proceed along this track.  Well bare in mind that once your idea is out there, if you haven't take the appropriate legal steps to protect it, all could be lost - in a fight in a court of law!  If nothing else, protect yourself by considering a Provisional Patent.  This will give you the right to say you have a patent pending, lend you some measure of protection while you pursue which avenues are best for you, and until you have weighed your options carefully.  For a small fee, much smaller than a full patent costs, you can gain the peace of mind of knowing that your idea is protected, at least for one year.  Creative Finesse can assist you with the preparation and filing of your provisional patent.

Promoting Your Business or Website? Don't forget the tried and true resources that are available to you and most importantly, are FREE!  Be sure to list in yellowpages.com, local.com and also froogle local.  Your local potential clients can drive that most valued "foot traffic" and spread the good news about you too.

Desire a Government Contract?  So do many others.  But in order to obtain one you must first register with the CCR (Central Contract Registration).  This is a very important step toward becoming an accepted vendor with the government.  There is quite a bit of information that will be required and you also have to obtain a DUNS number, but if you have a service or product that you want to offer to the "big boys" then you must undergo this process.  It isn't too difficult and it could be well worth your time and energy. 

 
Looking for Business Training?  I have personally taken advantage of the training offered courtesy of SkillPath.  They also offer you an option to sign up for their very informative E-letter.  They say "Over the years, SkillPath has grown to become the premier provider of business training in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. When we launched the company in 1989, we offered 82 seminars. Today we deliver more than 20,000 "how-to" sessions to over 500,000 people in 450 cities."  I say, give them a try if it is business training that you seek.

We hope that the resources listed below are helpful to you.  Please return to this page often because as we develop and locate additional useful resources, we will continue to post them here.  If you suggest a resource that is included, we will be happy to give you credit for the referral. 

Thanks again.
