Successfully taking a small business idea from concept to reality requires dedication and belief in your dream. It also requires effective planning, financing, marketing and record keeping.
Continuing its small business series, OSU Institute of Technology will host a Money Smart for Small Business training workshop developed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and Small Business Administration in the Donald D. Reynolds Center Pavilion on Wednesday, August 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The cost to attend the workshop is $25 and includes all training materials and lunch.
Topics of discussion and resources provided will relate to organizational types, financial management, banking services, risk management, tax planning and reporting, time management, recordkeeping credit reporting, insurance, selling your business and succession planning.
“This is a great opportunity for anyone starting their own business or thinking about starting their own business to find resources and advice on how to make that a reality,” said Mark Hays, OSUIT Director of Workforce and Economic Development.
All of these accomplishments are pretty remarkable for the student from Heavener, a small town in eastern Oklahoma, who became interested in body work during high school, worked at a shop during summer breaks and experimented by customizing on his own pickup.
