Business Workshops

Starting a Business

You have a passion … a hidden talent. Do you know what it takes to turn that skill into a successful business? Attend this workshop if you are an entrepreneur, new business owner, innovator or a ‘closet’ business person. Prepare to be informed, motivated, and focused on your business plan for action. The workshop is FREE and information PRICELESS!

This workshop (formerly titled Entrepreneurial Series: Fundamentals of Starting a Business) is designed for individuals who are considering self-employment, or who may be at the beginning stages of starting a business. Delivered in a workshop format, this introductory session helps aspiring entrepreneurs assess their abilities to lead and manage a company; as well as, evaluate market and sales potential for their products/services. Start-up costs, financing options, and business planning are introduced, along with necessary steps to get started.
