Could you be a Successful Business Owner?

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, sixty-three percent of Americans plan to work during retirement.  Many of these people are planning on starting their own businesses.  After all, a retiree can tap into a lifetime of experience when putting business ideas into action!

A great place to start weighing your decision to start a business is to sit down with one of Citizens Bank Minnesota’s business lenders.  We will listen to your ideas, and help you gather the information and resources you need to develop a sound business plan.  We also can direct you to mentors in our area like SCORE (a nationwide nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow, and succeed) or the Small Business Development Center (which provides financial counseling, marketing advice and management guidance).

And, if your business plan will require financing, we can help you with a small business loan.  Not to mention all the other financial tools an entrepreneur will need, like merchant credit card services, deposit accounts, cash management and internet banking, and remote deposit services.

Citizens can help you with your plans and dreams.  All you have to do is stop in and ask!
