Thinking of becoming your own boss? This seminar series will focus on key elements when starting a small business and honing the idea into action for an entrepreneur. The curriculum has been created from time-honored practice, small business owner advice, research-based evidence, current sources, and trending topics. Theoretical, topical, yet practical best practices will be shared throughout the series.

Topics will include the purposeful and passionate pursuit of small business ownership; business plan and feasibility analysis; mechanics and how to start; marketing and promotion; hiring employees; and much more. The final sessions will include guest speakers to discuss insurance, banking, alternative lending, and a panel of small business owners who will discuss the trials and tribulations of striking out on your own.
