Registration Information for theSmall Business Growth and Planning Series

(Small Business GPS)

Replacing GROW's long time Minding Your Own Business course is the new Small Business Growth and Planning Series (Small Business GPS). Here is how it works.

Three clusters of three classes each will be offered quarterly. These three clusters are:

• Business Basics
o Strategic Planning
o Taxes and Legal (2 Sessions)

• Marketing Strategies

o Marketing 101
o Internet Marketing
o Branding & Personal Selling

• Financial Awareness
o Income Statement/Balance Sheet/Breakeven Analysis
o Financial Analysis 101
o Financing Options

• A final Wrap Up and Implementation Class

People can pick and choose any or all of the clusters. For example, someone may have a marketing background, so they may choose to only take the Business Basics and Financial Awareness Clusters.

Note: people can pick and choose only clusters, not classes. Registrants need to take all three classes in a cluster. A cluster costs and consists of 3 classes.

Small Business GPS is designed to provide participants the information and resources to write a business plan. Someone taking all three clusters and the final Wrap Up and Implementation class will be able to write a business plan.

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance. Contact Nicole at GROW, (616) 458-3404.
