Library visit a visible success!

Every third Thursday, I (or another Community Futures professional) comes to Onoway to visit with entrepreneurs who are looking for direction, resources, tips or strategies on starting,  managing, expanding or financing your business. My most recent visit was much more attended than previous occassions and the conversations that took place were helpful, I think.

We talked about the general outlines of getting financing and how that whole process works.

We talked about publicity, and how to get free media coverage by positioning yourself as relevant or newsworthy.
