This introductory workshop answers basic questions such as:

   * Am I ready to start a business?

    * Does my business idea make sense?

    * What business structure do I need?

    * How do I secure financing?

    * What is a Business Plan and why do I need one?

    * What are some issues I may not have considered?


If you have an idea, interested in pursuing your passion, or want to start a business and be your own boss, then you do not want to miss this event.

There is a small investment on your part. You can pay $25 when you register now or you can pay $30 at the door. So for less than the price of a good meal, you will get some great information that could potentially increase your income.
