BA is a free virtual toolbox of resources from successful business visionaries, designed to help business owners and entrepreneurs build their businesses.

Every month, the Business Accelerator Publication features a different theme including building a brand, lessons in leadership and business costs. September's issue will feature a guide to buying a franchise.

"BA provides different around-the-clock entrepreneurial instruction geared toward the individual entrepreneur or business owner's needs," said Francisca Brown, multicultural marketing manager with American Family Insurance. "The money issue is an invaluable resource for business owners who need assistance taking their dream to the next level."

As a provider of commercial insurance products, American Family developed this resource to help all business owners not only survive, but thrive. The new online format of BA allows entrepreneurs across the country to take advantage of this free resource.

With BA's Virtual Toolbox for the avid entrepreneur, the cost of running a business just became more affordable.
