Is Small Business Ownership Right for You? - 4/15 

This workshop is for anybody who is considering starting their own business and becoming an entrepreneur. 

Are you thinking about starting a business and want to jump start the process?  If so, then this workshop offers you an opportunity to take the next steps in exploring whether entrepreneurship is right for you. In this workshop you will be provided with practical information to help you create a "success road map" so you can decide whether to turn your business ideas into action. 

 This workshop was created by SCORE Business Mentor Gregory Paley who helps founders, entrepreneurs, and business owners develop financial, operational and strategic plans to start, to manage, and to grow their businesses.

(Three Hour Workshop: 9:00AM - 12:00PM)

In this workshop you will be introduced to the process of evaluating and deciding whether you want to go into business for yourself.  Each participant will learn how to approach their pre-business planning efforts and develop a strategy to evaluate the potential rewards and risks of starting their own business.

Topics covered:

  • Attributes of Entrepreneurship
  • Is Business Ownership Right for You?
  • Start or Buy a Business
  • Turning an Idea into a Business
  • Action Steps and Getting Started

This is an interactive workshop so all attendees will be encouraged to participate and to collaborate with others throughout the session. During this workshop you will also have the opportunity to meet and network with other local entrepreneurs and business people and upon completion will have the opportunity to work with a SCORE business mentor for the life of your business- for free!

We now require pre-registration and pre-payment for all workshops. If you have met with a mentor, are in the SEAP program, or are registering for three or more workshops at once, please email us atgreaterseattle@scorevolunteer.org for a discount code.
