SCORE Great Beginnings Seminar Sept. 13
The Sandhills Chapter of SCORE will present the second of six seminars in its popular "Business Basics" series Tuesday, Sept. 13
This seminar, titled "Great Beginnings," starts at 6 p.m. in room 103 of Van Dusen Hall at Sandhills Community College.
The "Business Basics" series of six seminars, a valuable package for motivated entrepreneurs, is sponsored jointly by SCORE and the Small Business Center of Sandhills Community College. To register for the seminar, call the Small Business Center at (910) 695-3938. There will also be registration available beginning at 5:30 on the evening of the seminar.
This seminar is designed to make entrepreneurs knowledgeable about the issues of starting a small business so that those first steps allow them to "move out smartly," a SCORE news release said. Subjects to be covered include Small Business Administration resources available, business plan essentials, accounting, record keeping, tax issues, legal structure options, financing options, and risk mitigation (insurance).
The seminars are being presented on consecutive Tuesday evenings through Oct. 11 to inform current and prospective small business owners on the key elements of operating a business. Business owners who attend all of the seminars will be eligible to receive a $75 cash award from SCORE to apply to advertising expenses for their business.
SCORE is a nationwide nonprofit association of experienced business people who provide free, confidential counseling to small business owners. The Sandhills chapter is active in counseling, mentoring and presenting free business seminars.
