IT’S THE YOUECONOMY – IT’S A MOVEMENT!

Are you an Ageless Entrepreneur?  Whether you are 18 or 80, you may have always wanted to know about starting your own business. Why, because today’s graduates (don’t want a boss or can’t find a job) or today’s retirees (who want to earn extra money and keep busy), are looking for business options.

If you still believe in your dreams and have an internet connection, you can be an Ageless Entrepreneur!  From brick and mortar to click and order, there are all types of businesses for the full and part-time entrepreneur.

The purpose of this class will be to engage attendees in determining the type of business that they wish to start.  As an Interactive group, we will develop start-up business ideas, business names, and steps to be taken on the journey to business ownership.
