Start-up Assistance

Thursday, June 09, 2016 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
IThis seminar has been created for those individuals who are thinking about starting and operating their own business; however, they do not know if they have the personality, drive, creativity, adaptability, and a host of other talents and attributes that comprise a successful entrepreneur. During this seminar, attendees will honestly assess “themselves” in order to discover their strengths and weaknesses; wherefrom, they can make a better informed decision on moving forward at this point in time. The seminar will also incorporate various exercises and “role playing” events where the attendee will be faced with realistic challenges encountered by entrepreneurs and they will have to determine or design a solution. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to present their business “ideas” and they will be shown various ways they can determine if the idea is feasible and viable.
