This course is designed by Brad Bunt, SBDC Director and Sandra Russell, CPA of Sandra H. Russell P.C. in an effort to aid current and future entrepreneurs not only with the difficult decision of going into business for themselves, but also with the difficult day-to-day decisions regarding the operation of a business. Whether it is poor or ineffective management, lack of financial resources, or just a lack of information and planning, many business startups fail within the first five years of operation. Courses such as this are key to the success of owning and operating a business in East Texas.
This course will cover eight (8) separate sections on the proper operation of a business, which includes a variety of topics important to small business start-ups and existing businesses. From making the initial decision to starting a business, to planning for your company's tax savings, this course will help you with opening a business, as well as keeping that business running as efficiently as possible. The course will be presented in a weekly, step by step, practical approach to business as opposed to a theoretical or academic approach, with the small business owner and potential owner in mind. Material covered each week will later be included in the different sections of a business plan.
