There are significant benefits to starting your own business, like being your own boss and the satisfaction of creating and growing a viable company. But, before you begin, you need a sound financial plan. Join us at the West Orange Public Library this Thursday, September 13 at 7pm for a free seminar that will help you maximize the potential of your small business. Featured subjects will include creating a financial statement and business plan, an overview of basic accounting concepts, start-up costs, break-even analysis, cash-flow tracking, collecting receivables, and sources and methods of funding. A veteran S.C.O.R.E. (Service Corps of Retired Executives) counselor will review the necessary steps in writing a plan and then review an actual business plan. Be sure to take advantage of this chance to have all your questions answered and get your new business off to a great start. Advance registration is recommended. Sign up online or call 973-736-0198 to reserve your seat.
