October is winding down but this is still the best time of the year to learn more about business skills, resources, threats, and opportunities. Our focus in November is on practical skills and opportunities. Click the “Greenville Events” page to learn more and register for one of these workshops.
We start with a new program “The Science of Selling” on Friday November 2. Held as a lunch-and-learn, your registration includes a tasty box lunch and a copy of The Selling Machine, which is the basis for the program. Everyone has to sell something – whether it is your resume or a product. But sales isn’t a dark mystical art that only a chosen few can understand. Everyone can benefit from learning a few basic steps to building your own ‘selling machine.’
Next up is “Social Media Freedom” on Thursday November 15. Led by Chris Manley of Engenius Web Design, this two-hour workshop will help you step back and look at various social media platforms from the perspective of your marketing plan. Don’t get caught up in too many posts on too many sites that your customers don’t see. But if your customers are there – and they are looking for you – be there!
Also on Thursday November 15, we are hosting “Exploring the World of Government Contracting” at the Greenville Marriott. This half-day event will bring representatives from several US Government agencies to you. Learn the WHAT, WHY and HOW to get involved as a contractor or subcontractor in government purchasing.
Last, we wrap up November with a great forum called “Small Business Legal Issues” on Friday November 30. John Perkins and Doug Lineberry address a variety of topics from entity formation to intellectual property from a very practical perspective. This program gets great reviews and is full of straight forward information from the real world of small business. Someone told me that life is too short to make every mistake for yourself. Here’s a chance to learn from someone else and avoid the big ones!
