Thinking of going into business yourself? What are your options: a startup business, buy an existing business, or consider a franchise?
This seminar will help you ask the right questions to find the business arena where you will really thrive. We'll help you create a business model that provides the best platform for reaching your unique personal, professional and financial goals.
The workshop will address the actual risks involved in business ownership vs. a traditional career and help you select recession-resistant industries. Registrants will benefit from feedback by submitting our FREE Business Evaluation & Suitability Test (BEST) (link provided at registration). The BEST profile is offered by national SCORE partner FranNet to assess your individual work and leadership style, core competencies and identify the best types of businesses for your personality and experience. The BEST profile takes about 20 minutes with results promptly and confidentially returned to you.
This free seminar is funded by the Friends of the Longview Library, FranNet (a national SCORE partner) and the volunteers of SCORE Vancouver. Seating is limited in order to encourage participant interaction so please register early. SCORE Certified Business mentors will be on hand during the workshop and can schedule free mentoring follow-up.
