We'll try again this Summer
We've melted it down and reformatted it to be a two-hour "stick your toe in the water" introduction rather than a long "how-to" instruction guide! Our shorter workshop is still very entertaining and informative but is now like the appetizer for the full course meal the SBA and other organizations offer, so come see if this is an idea worth pursuing!
6:30-8:30 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Meridian (behind City Hall). Cost is $20 to help pay for our printer ink!. Register HERE

Workshop Sneak Peek
The most critical marketing decision you'll ever make for your business is choosing a business name. It should be short, easy to remember and tell what you do. Examples: Jiffy Lube, Sweet N Low, Baby Wipes, Tates Rents.

New protections for servicemembers and veterans alert
In May 2018, new protections for servicemembers and veterans were signed into law. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Bureau previously highlighted the new federal law that went into effect on September 21, 2018 requiring free security freezes and one year fraud alerts at the three nationwide credit reporting agencies (CRAs).
We already have a small business, but gained a great deal of information to grow our business - the rights and wrongs and many resources to go to.
This program will benefit both veterans looking to start a business or have a business that needs a boost.
