VIDEO: Reno-Sparks entrepreneurs motivated to start, build businesses
RENO, Nev. — Roughly 25 eager entrepreneurs gathered Wednesday, June 27, for the initial session of a five-week seminar to help people start, build and grow their businesses.
The free series, “Let’s Talk – Small Business Success,” hosted by Great Basin Federal Credit Union in collaboration with 120 West Strategic Communications, is designed to teach small business owners how to use strategy, business planning, messaging and marketing to run a successful business.
Getting a taste of the free series, the Northern Nevada Business View spoke with attendees about what motivated them to become a small business owner and what they hope to gain from the sessions.
The free five-week series will culminate in a comprehensive business plan workshop on Oct. 24. The rest of the sessions will have different topics as follows:
Northern Nevada’s smaller markets expect economic stability in 2021; issues could slow future growth
While much of the economic attention in Nevada has centered on Las Vegas and Reno, the Silver State’s smaller markets and rural communities are in varying degrees of rebounding from the COVID recession.
