There’s satisfaction and pride associated with owning and operating your own business, however there’s also risk and challenges… not everyone succeeds. So understanding them and how to deal with them will improve your chances for success, and attending this free workshop will help you get started on the right foot!

We’ll talk about:
• Identifying a specific market for what you’ll be selling
• Creating a sales message that works
• Where funding may be available to help get you started
• Avoiding common mistakes made in choosing a business location
• Deciding what business structure is best for you
Many small business start-ups fail in just a few short years… don’t let that happen to you. The time and effort you invest working on your business before you get started working in your business will pay off.

Dennis Wright of SCORE presents this workshop. His 43-year business career included sales, procurement and management roles, and since 2009 he has put that considerable experience to work as a SCORE volunteer helping more than 300 would be and existing business owners with various challenges and opportunities.

More Info:

A Business Plan is an important document for raising start-up capital, helping you to monitor progress and achieving your goals. When done correctly, it is a "living" document and tool that will help you manage the business beyond start-up. We will help you prepare a realistic plan that will document your vision, goals and strategy. No business should be started or maintained without a Plan. The key is an understanding of what should be included and how to capture the reader's interest in a concise but interesting way. Having a difficult time with the financial section? Your presenter will help you understand the three financial statements and how they relate to risk and performance. He will take the mystery out of forecasting.
