CLASS WILL BE ONLINE - BEFORE THE CLASS YOU WILL BE GIVEN INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO GET ACCESS TO THE WEBINAR. No Cost, but registration is required. You will need to have a computer with a microphone (if you might want to ask questions) with good internet speed. Are you considering starting a new business? Not sure what you need to do and what steps to take? Then Start Your Business Smart! Business Smart Start is an introduction to owning your own business. Topics covered include deciding on a legal entity structure, basic accounting and tax issues, steps you need to take for permits and licensing, steps to writing a business plan and basics of marketing and market research. We cover the nine steps to market research to determine if your business idea makes sense. Class is for individuals in business, thinking of starting a business even if it might be years in the future. The class is 3.0 hours long so these topics will only be briefly covered. Upon completing the class you will have the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of the professional business advisors in our office.
