Pay What Your Wish - Min $10


Starting and running a business is HARD. The appeal of being one’s own boss is something that entrepreneurs initially think is easy to accomplish. The process of starting all of the necessary systems often overwhelms business owners because there is a lot to do. Starting a business is not just about making sales; rather it is: developing a name, coming up with a logo and website, creating a business plan and projections, applying for funding, assessing the value in the marketplace, and much more.

This course meets October 18th from 5-7PM ET

Bringing It All Together is part of the Craft Your Commerce Workshop Series Next Level Financials and Operations.

This is a VIRTUAL class. The zoom link will be sent upon registration. Please email Lilley@mountainbizworks.org with any questions or concerns.
