Entrepreneurship On The Side: Owning A Business Doesn’t Have to Take Over Your Life
Glades Road Branch
Thu, Apr 24, 10:00 am

We tend to think of entrepreneurs as people who toil 24/7 and put everything they own on the line for a business that consumes their lives. It doesn’t have to be that way. Entrepreneurs are also people with full-time jobs who work a few hours a week at their own businesses to bring in some extra cash and have some fun. Sound appealing? Phil Scruton of the Small Business Development Center at Palm Beach State College informs and inspires on a path that doesn’t require you to go “all-in.” (2 hr.) Preregister by calling 561-862-4726.
