If you’ve been going back-and-forth about starting your own business, or you have an idea you think could be the next big thing, this Bergen County workshop could be just what you’re looking for.
The 1st Bergen Federal Credit Union and Greater Bergen Community Action Inc. Financial and Housing Counseling Program are partnering with America’s Small Business Development Center of New Jersey to offer a free, four-part small business certificate program.
According to its hosts, the June series is ideal for median income individuals in search of guidance to make their business ideas into business successes, or for owners looking to increase the profits and progress of their existing business.
Vince Vicari, the regional director of America’s SBDC of NJ will serve as instructor for the series, which will explore topics including: How to figure out if you’re really ready to own your own business; how to prepare yourself – and your finances – to begin a business; the correct way to write a business plan, with complimentary software provided to help; and how to achieve and execute your goals.
According to the Greater Bergen Community Action, the workshops are part of the not-for-profit’s and 1st Bergen Federal Credit Union’s efforts to build sustainable community institutions, families and neighborhoods to encourage and empower individuals.
All parts of the series will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at 316 State St. in Hackensack. Part 1 is scheduled for June 5, Part 2 for June 12, Part 3 for June 19 and Part 4 for June 26.
