Today’s post is about a great new initiative for anyone interested in working for themselves or starting a small business.
It’s called Start Up Saturday, and consists of 12 weekly classes, taking place on a Saturday morning, at a Staples store near you (hopefully!), that are going to cover a number of different topics related to starting a small business.
To whet your appetite, a couple of the course titles are “All things Web – building a home online” and “Make some noise! Successful marketing on a budget” but there really are a diverse mix of areas included and you can choose to attend all 12 sessions or dip in and out and book only those that interests you.
I think this is a great concept, it considers the fact that a lot of people looking to go into business for themselves are often working to a very limited budget and might hold down a full-time job prior to making that commitment, and you’ll get to meet other budding entrepreneurs along the way.
As always, to find out more, check out the link below, it explains where and when the courses are taking place and how to sign up, maybe now is the time to take the next step?
