Come learn if you are ready to be your own boss by attending a two-part series, “Be Your Own Boss,” to be offered by Piedmont Community College’s Business Development and Entrepreneurship Center (BDEC). During these sessions, you will learn what it takes to get started, and more importantly, what it takes to be successful.  

The first session will be held on Wed., March 13, from 1-4 p.m., and the second session will be held on Thurs, March 14, from 1-4 p.m. Both sessions will be held at the Public Safety Training Center, 337 Wall St., Yanceyville, NC.    

The series will cover a wide range of topics including: what personal qualities and skills are needed to be successful, how to find a business idea that fits you, how to evaluate a business opportunity and determine if your business idea will support you, where to find funding, what a business plan is and why you need one. After completing these sessions you will be better able to decide if starting a business is for you. If it is, you will know what steps you need to take next and what resources are available to help you.  

Although the seminars will be offered at no charge to participants, registration is required. Register by calling the BDEC at (336) 599-0032.
