My friend Lucinda will be teaching a free workshop on “How to be your own boss” on June 4, 2 – 3:30 pm & June 25, 3 – 4:30 pm at the Larimer County Workforce Center in old town Fort Collins (Registration is required). You can do so here. Innovation and entrepreneurship are the key to the growth in our economy, and many companies got their start during an economic downturn such as the one we are in now. During this workshop, Lucinda will discuss the different types of self-employment to consider including working as an independent contractor, the characteristics of successful self-employed individuals, starting a business with limited financial resources, action steps to implement when you have a great idea for a business, and orientation to free business assistance resources. If being your own boss is part of your plan, you shuold attend this workshop. Hope to see you there!
