“Have you been moved out of a career through layoffs or mergers? Longing to be your own boss and follow your dream? Times have changed, and one-person businesses are a permanent part of our new economy. Are you ready to become ‘your business’ and join this fast growing group of entrepreneurs? Let’s enjoy discussing:
- Learning from others’ successes (books/tapes, workshops, Internet, etc.)
- Doing your homework/research (markets/competition)
- Self-assessment (skills, expertise, business idea)
- Lifestyle changes (working alone, no paycheck, family support, freedom)
- Legal form of business, licenses, zoning, ID, taxes, write-offs, contracts, etc.
- Business plan, seed money, working capital, budgets
- Market research, and target markets
- Sales/Marketing, cards, Web pages, brochures, networking
- Setting up shop (supplies, equipment, accounting, etc.)
- Seven reasons businesses could fail
- Personal/Professional well-being (support, inspiration, continued learning, time out)”
