About My Business Resource
MBR was created knowing first hand the HR challenges businesses face.
The creation and implementation of HR processes can be daunting. The founders of MBR recognized this and created HR solutions to help companies manage these challenges.
MBR was created to fill a need.
As an owner of multiple businesses, Rick Lane knew first-hand the real challenges that owning and running a business presents. Banking, IT, recruiting, hiring, payroll, marketing, worker’s compensation, unemployment claims – all of these things fall into an owner’s lap. They take up time and energy that owners would much rather spend with their customers and generating revenue.
Rick turned to a friend and former co-worker, Rachel Kutay for help in solving some of these problems. Using her strong background in HR, Operations, and Marketing, Rachel was able to quickly resolve many of these challenges. Rachel took these items off Rick’s plate, solved his challenges, and connected him with better qualified, more responsive partners to support Rick’s businesses.
A partnership is born.
Rick knew he wasn’t the only owner facing these challenges. He and Rachel began discussing the idea of helping small businesses in the same way – and very quickly, My Business Resource was born.
Since the fall of 2019, My Business Resource has grown from one friend helping another to a true consultancy, with a team of professionals focused on partnering with small business owners to remove the obstacles to growth and provide them with the expertise and tools to run their businesses more effectively.
