Managing a Business

Room 117. Registration required. Insurance is one subject that can be very confusing and easy to neglect when starting a business. However, it is a subject that should be taken very seriously from the very beginning when owning and operating a business. The Small Business Center at Randolph Community College has worked with many insurance professionals to build a FREE seminar that will help business owners understand what coverage that you need and also what coverage you don’t need. This small business insurance seminar is an opportunity for entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs to learn more about how to cover their risk when owning and operating a small business. Instructor Adam Lemmert is a licensed insurance professional who works everyday with small business owners to reduce their liabilities and losses during difficult and unforeseen circumstances. A few of the topics that will be covered include Crime, Fire, Business/Personal Property, Utilities, and Natural Disaster Coverage but Adam is also willing to help answer questions you have that are specific to your small business needs. Join us for this FREE and informative small business insurance seminar that could wind up saving you more money than anything else you do this year!

Learn the key mistake to make that can lose you time and money. You will understand how to effectively manage: time, money, priorities and customers to maximize results.

JB & Claire Davis Training Center. Registration required. The Small Business Center and Randolph Arts Guild are teaming up to provide the Business of Arts Series in 2018. Juried shows allow artist and craftsmen to sell their products in a professional setting but often they scare away new or emerging artist because they aren't familiar with the process. This can be an advantage for your business! Grace McFetters will join us as the speaker and will guide attendees through the process of applying to a juried art show and using them to grow their small business. Arts shows and festivals are one of the main sources of revenue for artist and this seminar will take you through the process of applying, setting up, working, and following up for a juried art show. Join us to understand more about these business opportunities and how to grow your small art business.
Speaker: Web Grubb, Grace McFetters
