Do you have a great business idea and need advice on how to get started? Were you aware that a study by the U.S. Small Business Administration found that 80% of all small businesses fail in the first five years? The reasons why are because of inexperienced management operations, insufficient capital for start-up and backup costs, and inadequate business planning. Attend this workshop to find the answers to these issues.
