ABCs of Starting and Growing Your Business
Local workshop with Vic Berniklau

If you're thinking about starting or growing a small business, boost your chances of success before spending any of your hard-earned money! 

  • How can I come up with a good business idea?
  • Will it be embraced by the marketplace?
  • Will it be profitable?
  • How can I expand my existing business with an assurance of success?

Our "one-stop shop" workshop will teach you everything you need to know to start your business and avoid the common pitfalls that take down 80% of startup businesses within the first five years.

This workshop is for those who are:

  • willing to make the time and resource commitment to create a successful business
  • willing to persist despite inevitable challenges 
  • thirsty for knowledge
  • willing to apply the concepts learned
