SCORE Seminar Series Begins Tuesday
The Sandhills Chapter of SCORE (Counselors to America's Small Business) begins the winter 2013 edition of its popular small business seminar series Tuesday with "The Right Stuff."
The seminar begins at 6 p.m. in room 103 of Van Dusen Hall on the Sandhills Community College campus. This is the first in a series of six "Business Basics" seminars sponsored jointly by SCORE and the Small Business Center of Sandhills Community College.
"In today's fast-paced world of commerce, starting a new business brings more challenges than ever," a SCORE news release said. "Having the 'right stuff,' the kind Tom Wolfe described in his best-seller book and movie, to persevere through the trials and tribulations and manage the risks of starting and running a business, greatly improves the likelihood of success.
"This seminar provides the tools to enable the aspiring entrepreneur to realistically assess the risk of starting into business by highlighting the various pitfalls that will likely be encountered and suggesting strategies and tactics for success to overcome these challenges. The seminar teaches how to develop the 'right stuff' to be able to start a new business in a way that increases the potential to be a winner."
Topics covered include: why most new businesses fail, what it takes to be successful, tips on starting and running your own business, pitfalls that will destroy your new business, and "It's all about you - visionary, manager, doer."
To register for the seminar, call the Small Business Center at (910) 695-3938. Registration will also be available beginning at 5:30 on the day of the seminar.
