I get by with a little help from Sandra Wilks

And so do small businesses and non-profit organizations, thanks to Sandra's lifelong passion for helping people achieve their career goals.

She's a Philadelphia entrepreneur who works in conjunction with the Community Capital Works at Philadelphia Development Partnership. Her mission: to help microenterprises develop core business skills, and get their concepts off the ground.

It's a fitting role for a woman who got her start in business 50 years ago selling household goods door to door. And her later experiences running a grocery store with her husband taught her about the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of small business ownership.

Now, she draws on these lessons to teach other start-ups how to find capital, obtain licenses, develop consistent marketing tools, and refine organizational vision.

We called Sandra up for her direct insights into the small business universe. The result was an informative, inspirational podcast that will give new business owners actionable advice about where to start.

And, whether you're a new business owner, or know someone that is, send the podcast along to spread the resources.
