He is the instructor at SCORE’s free upcoming (Jan 28) seminar ‘Simple Steps to a Well-Run Business’. Owning and operating a small business can be overwhelming and frustrating, but with the right skills and knowledge, you will see it can also be rewarding and successful. This 3-part seminar outlines skills in operating your business, navigating the environment around your business, and communicating with your customers. You will learn strategies for business operations, discover how to plan and think strategically, and develop or refine and communicate the core values of your business to your customers and to others.
