Due to Popular Demand, SBDC to Present another "Starting a Business Workshop" in Traverse City - August 11


Individuals considering self-employment or in the beginning stages of starting a business will have another opportunity to access to a wide variety of helpful information at a Starting a Business workshop being offered in Traverse City by the Northwest Michigan Small Business Development Center (SBDC). This workshop is being held just two weeks after a similar workshop.

"Our workshop on July 29th was popping at the seams and more people wanted in," stated Tricia Stevens, Intake Specialist for SBDC in Traverse City. "So, Walt Muellenhagen, one of our small business consults, arranged to provide a second offering on August 11th."
