Entrepreneurs invited to ‘big idea’ workshop

Do you have a great idea? Think you could make money off it? There's a workshop coming up in Cranbrook that could tell you how.

Community Futures of the East Kootenay is hosting a free workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. called "Me Inc."

The workshop is designed for people thinking about starting a business. Run by the Basin Business Advisors Program, the session will provide participants with all of the critical considerations needed to make the leap. It will give concrete information about becoming an entrepreneur.

The workshop also includes a self-assessment that will help you find out if you have what it takes to become an entrepreneur. You can explore what's hot and what's not in business trends. The workshop will also help you create a plan to turn your business dreams into reality and find out about support organizations and funding.

The workshop also covers the characteristics of self-employment as a career and business types to consider.
