Are you thinking about starting your own business? The Florida SBDC at UWF/FWB offers “Starting a Business” on August 12th from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. In this two-hour workshop, we will take an in-depth view of your business concept and discuss the steps to a successful start: Is there a need for your product or service? Can you make money at it? Are you the right person to bring this to market? Is this business compatible with your personal goals? What rules, laws and licensing apply to your business? We will discuss funding options for your business, basic marketing strategies, legal business structures, taxation and the nuts-and-bolts of actually launching your new venture. Presenter: Diana Jernigan, Business Consultant, Florida SBDC at UWF. Location: Destin Chamber of Commerce, 4484 Legendary Dr, Ste A, 32541. No fee. This is a rare "no-charge" event, but space is limited so advance registration is required. To register online: www.sbdc.uwf.edu and click on “Training & Events” in Fort Walton Beach.
