The Small Business Center at Haywood Community College will offer a free seminar entitled, “Business Planning for Business Success” on Tuesday, January 17, from 6-9 pm on campus in the Student Center, first floor.

The old bromide is true: "Failure to plan is planning to fail." While you can never perfectly foretell the future, you can lay out a reasonable plan for how your business will start, operate, attract customers, deal with competitors, and MAKE MONEY. Learn a simple technique for writing an effective business plan. Discover what really needs to be there, what detracts from your message, how to say what's important, and how to use your plan to communicate your business idea to lenders, investors, customers, vendors, and others. Also learn the most effective method for improving your business plan.
