Your Business Dreams Could Come True November 12

November 3, 2009

Do you dream of starting a business?  Is this an opportune time?

Find out what it will take to make your dream a reality. Bring your ideas, questions, and creativity to a small business workshop November 12, 2009, from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., at the Finlandia University Jutila Center, 200 Michigan St., Hancock.

The purpose of the workshop is to guide future entrepreneurs in the creation of their dream business.
