HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 2010 3 SBDC Report Minimize risk and maximize success with a business plan By DARRELL V.

In business terms, this means what territory does the business hope to serve and with what products? What rate of profitability is likely, and how will the business be orga- nized and managed to achieve Foster, adoptive parents needed in New Mexico Submitted by CYFD Becoming a foster or adop- tive parent can make a huge dif- ference in the life of a child.
