The year 2020 provided small business owners with challenges beyond anything imagined, including mandated business closures, lack of cash flow, increased costs due to regulations, and a lack of accurate information on pathways through to the “other side” of re-opening and re-charging small businesses successfully. The three-part workshop will help ensure that business owners are empowered to make choices which contribute to their overall success, using proven techniques and best practices to increase small business resiliency. The virtual series will use the Zoom platform, as well as online resources. (Scholarships may be available. Call CCEast to learn more.) Fee: $145.
