Workshop Sponsored by People, Inc.

The Introduction to Business class had the opportunity to attend People, Inc.'s Business Basics Workshop. This is information People, Inc. provides to small business owners in our area. Some of the topics include: Why a business plan, financing your business, financial responsibility within an organization, elements of creditworthiness, and the importance of credit reports. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn about business while networking with each other. Each student has been developing a business plan most of the semester, and they were given the opportunity to summarize their ideas. In addition, they each received a gift associated with their business idea to remind them that we believe in their success.


Welcome to Business Basics!
