Free workshop offers insight on starting your own business
The City of Redlands will present the latest in a series of free Small Business Workshops, “Starting a New Business: Where Do I Start?” sponsored by SCORE Inland Empire on Wednesday, Nov. 14.
This free workshop is for entrepreneurs who want to start their own business and have no idea where to start or what to consider. Topics will include: defining reasons why you want to start a business, your business concept or ideas, and what start-up factors to consider. These factors will range from a wide variety of topics such as ownership, financing your business, recordkeeping, understanding your competition, marketing, and the basic business plan. This workshop will give you the opportunity to decide if being in business is right for you!
Presenter Ann Oliver’s background includes participating in all aspects of membership development, fund raising, human resources, legislative issues, conferences, conventions, education programs, as well as separate "for profit" organizations. She has also been an active Real Estate Sales Associate and sold residential, commercial property all over California for over 30 years.
