(WBNG Binghamton) Do you want to start your own business?

If so, a free mini Broome Community College Entrepreneurial Assistance Program will take at the Tioga County Economic Development & Planning building in Owego for six consecutive Thursdays, 6-9 pm April 11, 18, 25 and May 2, 9, 16

Do you wonder if self-employment is right for you? Is your business idea feasible? How much could you realistically make as an entrepreneur?

These questions and more will be explored in an interesting and informative 6-week series designed for those highly motivated to consider entrepreneurship.

The only cost to participants is $35 for training materials – two workbooks and a CD for developing projected financial statements, which must be paid to the instructor.

At the end of the program, participants are required to turn in a preliminary SWOT Analysis and Executive Summary.

In addition to classroom training, clients are eligible for individual coaching – in person, by phone or by e-mail. This coaching is also available after the program ends if participants attend at least five classes and submit the two required assignments.

The instructor and coach, Ginny Robert, is the author of the workbooks and the original director of EAP. With 25 years of training and coaching experience, she has helped thousands of individuals develop successful small businesses.
