Business Owners Can Build Success With Free Resources at Toolkit.com

Free Tools, Free Membership, and Chance for a Free Laptop

RIVERWOODS, IL--(Marketwire - September 19, 2007) - The Business Owner's Toolkit, one of the original and most-trusted online resources for small business, has a new location on the internet and will be adding new features in upcoming months. Business owners can now find its well-known collection of practical tips, business templates, and unique how-to content at http://www.toolkit.com/

To celebrate its relaunch, the site is giving away a free laptop each month for the next year to a randomly selected member. At the end of September, the first laptop giveaway will be a Dell™ Vostro™ notebook computer.

With an emphasis on problem solving, The Business Owner's Toolkit offers more than 5,000 pages of free cost-cutting tips, step-by-step checklists, real-life case studies, startup advice, and business templates to small business owners and entrepreneurs. The site also offers a monthly newsletter, up-to-date news topics, and "Ask Alice!," a column that closely follows industry trends and provides trusted advice to inquiring site visitors.

In addition users can expect new resources from the Business Owner's Toolkit in upcoming months. In October, the site will begin offering free webinars for business owners. Webinar topics will include Building a Business Plan, Finding Money to Start a Business, Accounting Basics, Choosing a Legal Structure and a Small Business Tax Workshop. In 2008, the site will launch a weekly internet radio show entitled 'Build Your Business' that covers small business topics.

"As one of the first Web sites dedicated to small business, the Business Owner's Toolkit offers a depth, breadth and timeliness of information unrivaled by other small business publishers," said Troy Janisch, the Toolkit's publisher. "The site includes detailed information on the tough issues that would otherwise require hiring a professional advisor."

Written by a special team of small business experts, accountants and attorneys, the Business Owner's Toolkit offers easy-to-follow guidelines helping visitors create a solid business plan; get the right kind of financing; market their business wisely; find, hire and motivate employees; handle payroll and benefits; work at home or outside the office; and manage cash flow, including credit and collections.

Until recently, the Business Owner's Toolkit was owned an operated at toolkit.cch.com by CCH Incorporated, the leading provider of information services, software and workflow tools for tax, accounting, legal and business professionals. Now, the site operates independently at toolkit.com while retaining a partnership with CCH to draw from the vast reserve of business information that CCH provides to accounting, legal, government, and business professionals.

Janisch said the site remains a handy reference that covers all of a business owner's needs -- from startup to shutdown, from business planning to marketing, from financing to amassing personal wealth.

Individuals can visit www.toolkit.com to signup for a free Business Owner's Toolkit membership. There are several benefits of signing up for free membership, Janisch said. Subscribers can download hundreds of members-only business checklists and templates; take advantage of member-only discounts; elect to receive the Toolkit's e-newsletter; create online business cards to promote their business and participate in upcoming events.
