Grow Your Business

Existing Businesses are the Cornerstone of Our Communities

Local businesses are a critical part of our diverse Marathon County communities. Businesses need to proactively adjust to the changing business, economic and legislative climate of their communities. After all, once you’ve successfully established your business, its potential can be affected by numerous factors — changes in demographics, economic trends, municipal or regulatory issues, growth in regional and global competition, workforce issues, or changes in technology.

Here you will find a collection of articles that keep you abreast of changes, initiatives and opportunities that can help your business thrive, adapt, expand and relocate.
