Our Small Business program aims to teach individuals the aspects of developing and maintain a business of their own. Clients will develop a business plan, register with their state, file with the IRS and identify a means of raising capital.

Through the use of materials provided by the Small Business Administration, clients will learn to identify the fundamental aspects of starting and growing a small business of their own. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, there were 9.6 million self-employed workers in 2016. This number is expected to increase to 10.3 million by 2026. Whether you are starting a new business or functioning as a partner of a growing business, knowing how to navigate the growing pains that come with those responsibilities is the difference between a successful venture and a missed opportunity.
