Like all small-business owners, you need to start off on the right foot by avoiding financial problems that too often trip up the self-employed. Now is a great time to make improvements in your business to avoid the pitfalls. This workshop will give you some great tips to get you on the right path to financial success.

Presented by successful accountants and business owners Eli and Wyndi Tagi


Starting your business on the right foot sets your business up for success, that's why it is essential to have a business and marketing plan in place. It is also essential to re-visit your plans regularly. This workshop will set you up on the right track or help you re-evaluate your current business and marketing plans. Whether you are a start-up or well-established business, taking time to STOP working in your business and START working on your business by planning ahead will set you up for success and growth in your business.

Presented by Director of Business Spacific and Small Business Management Tutor Jackie Curry-Malolo
This is the first of many workshops to come so please provide us with feedback and suggestions so we can bring more exciting workshops to you.
