“These business training opportunities will help you increase your skills and your profits,” said Ryan Eidson, GrowMidMo Program Administrator. “As you develop your business management skills, you will grow your ability to lead employees, clients, and customers which will impact your bottom line.”
Each of the training events are extended to the public on a non-discriminatory basis. The trainings are:
Focus on Financial Management, a three-part course in September to help you understand financial statements, analyze cash flow, and manage your future cash needs;
First Steps to Starting Your Business, which is offered three times this fall to help new entrepreneurs explore the process to begin a business in Missouri;
Prepare Your Marketing Activities for Small Business Saturday, a brown bag lunch & learn workshop to help you prepare for the large retail opportunity in November;
Grow Your Business with Government Contracts, a one-hour introduction to the opportunity to do local, state, educational, and federal contracting; and
Employee Wellness, a brown bag lunch & learn workshop to explore health incentives and wellness programs for your employees.
“When you attend these trainings, you will also meet like-minded entrepreneurs and make valuable connections for your business,” added Eidson. “You can learn from each other’s experiences and realize that you’re not alone in the challenges that you face in your business.”
