HCC to offer business plan workshop

Written by 

The Small Business Center of Haywood Community College will offer a free seminar entitled Business Plan Basics on Tuesday, Jan. 25, from 6-9 p.m. on campus in the Student Center, first floor.

Participants of Business Plan Basics will be able to study the steps to actually writing a plan and learn how to cover what is really needed in a short but useable plan. An effective business plan serves at least four goals:

• It helps you focus your ideas.

• It creates a track for you to follow in the early stages of business growth.

• It creates benchmarks against which you can measure your progress.

• It provides a document for attracting equity or debt financing.

The workshop will provide an interactive, hands-on, step-by-step primer to guide participants through the process of creating an effective business plan. Learn what a good plan must include and discover how it can bring together goals, plans, strategies and resources for a business. Examine how a good business plan can minimize risk and save you from significant financial and professional losses resulting from an unprofitable business.

Meghan Bunnell, a business counselor with the Small Business Technology Development Center (SBTDC) in Asheville, will lead this workshop. To preregister for this free seminar call the Small Business Center at 828.627.4512.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
