  • June 6 - Small Business Accounting Considerations by Rick Sanders, SCORE Mentor

There’s a lot to take into consideration when it comes to responsible accounting. Which tools are right for you? How will you protect customer data? What are you legally required to record? This fast-paced breakdown will help you understand what you need to know.

  • September 19 - Ready, Set, Go! (1:30-4:00) by Sharon Franjevic, Economic Development Specialist with the SBA Montana District Office in Helena

    Are you ready to start your business? Not sure if you have everything in order? Don’t know what you don’t know? The Ready, Set, Go workshop covers the business and financial basics needed to start and grow your own business. Attend this fast-paced seminar and learn how to eliminate mistakes before they happen as you start down the road to business ownership.

  • October 10 - Business Insurance? How Much do I Need? by Matthew Brownlow and Bryan Hall, First West Insurance

You may know that you need liability coverage, but should your small business have Business Perpetuation/Buy-Sell coverage? Crime coverage? Cyber Risk coverage? Key Man insurance? Led by two insurance professionals, this seminar will help you understand which coverage you need… and which you may not.

Choosing the formal structure of your business is a complex question, and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.  Take this chance to learn something about the difference between a partnership, sole-proprietorship, LLC, and corporation. If you want to make informed decisions, this seminar is for you.

  • December 12 - Being Social on Social Media by Karoline Rose, KRose Marketing and Consulting

    Long gone are the days that marketing could be accomplished with nothing but a flyer, a pamphlet, or a billboard. Especially in Montana’s wide-open spaces, digital marketing is a make-or-break proposition. So cut back on the mailers, save some trees, and learn about connecting to your customers online.
