If you or someone you know is expanding or starting a small business, you may want to learn about this free workshop put on by the Carroll Gardens Association Inc. They have something called "The Entrepreneur Assistance Program", which "offers resources to small businesses through workshops and one-on-one counseling with those who wish to start a business or those who wish to expand an existing business". This is really such a wonderful resource that should be taken advantage of. We found the above pic from a blog about kids with lemonade stands and thought it was cute and apropos. More info about the event is below.
The workshop will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 26th, 2012, from
6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the CGA Training Center, located at 201 Columbia
Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231.
The workshop will discuss how to determine the right business
for you, ideas on how to turn your hobby into
a business, how to have an advantage over similar businesses, what
documents to include in a Business Plan and how to use a Business Plan.
There will be a question and answer portion during the workshop.
Refreshments will be served during the workshop.
