Even in a tough economy, the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce says it's still possible to have a successful business and it's showing people how ... for free.
The chamber is offering a series of courses teaching entrepreneurs how to create a business plan, sharing advice on marketing and accounting and developing a realistic view of how much it costs. The program director says, when attendees finish the course they will be able to start a business with confidence.
Program Director Pamela Tribue says, "The overall benefit is just wonderful because they'll have the hands on experience. In most cases you go to a class, you attend the course for four to six hours and you walk away with out a product. With us, when they finish the courses they have a completed business plan. They are also able to have hands on assistance from our staff."
