Crain’s Detroit has a neat “Small Talk” series of videos. One of these is a Q&A with Michigan’s Small Business Advocate, Chris Holman. His job is to connect small businesses with services and programs. I had no idea there was even such a position (Chris’s page can be found at michigan.org).
Chris is (was?) the host of “Business Today with Chris Holman” on WILX-TV, “The Chris Holman Morning Show” on WILS AM radio and publisher of The Greater Lansing Business Monthly. He says that he’s a small business guy and is holding a series of roundtables across the state. I thought it might be cool to have folks in places he may not be able to visit ask him their questions. So, ask away in the comments and we’ll pass them along to him!
On an unrelatedly related note, Crain’s latest is a video on Parmenter’s Northville Cider Mill. It’s an interesting look behind the scenes at a business that makes most of its revenue in just a few weeks. Click to visit Parmenter’s website, and from there to make cider Michigan’s state drink. Works for me.
