Lamar Community College to hold Small Business Growth Workshop

(Lamar, Colorado, January 7, 2013)  Lamar Community College will host a one-day workshop entitled, “Simple Steps for Growing your Business.” The workshop is a six session follow-up to last years’ “Simple Steps to Starting your Business.”  The workshop, held on January 19, will be an initial overview of the six sessions, which will be held in the spring of 2013.

“Simple Steps for Growing your Business” is an interactive program that provides small business owners and managers with the knowledge and tools necessary to switch their strategy from start-up to growth mode. The workshop will give in-business clients customized strategies through the mentoring of SCORE professionals. The workshop includes free mentoring, facilitated roundtable discussions, and in-class exercises.

A Pueblo SCORE team will present the workshop material and lead discussions.  The Pueblo chapter is part of a national nonprofit association dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of the nation’s small businesses. It provides free and confidential business advice and counseling tailored to meet the needs of your small business and your personal objectives.

SCORE volunteers are real-world professionals with time-tested knowledge who donate thousands of hours to help small businesses succeed. Counselors are experts in such areas as accounting, finance, marketing, management and business plan preparation.

“Simple Steps for Growing your Business” is scheduled for Saturday, January 19 from 10 a – 3 p in the West Betz Conference Room (Betz Technology Center).  Lunch and workshop materials are included in the $75 registration fee.  Online registration is available at  Upon completion participants will receive a $75 voucher for a subsequent workshop to be held spring of 2013.
