Free seminar to provide tips on starting a new business

SBC-LogoLAURINBURG — Are you on the verge of starting a business? Do you feel like you have done your homework and are prepared to move forward?

Starting a business is much more than opening a checking account and buying a “privilege license,” according to Semone Brisson, accounting coach and business consultant.

“I used to think a business startup is just a smaller version of a larger business, but that is not the case,” Brisson said. “A business startup requires an open mind. Nothing is written in stone.”

Brisson will present a free seminar Tuesday, Aug. 26, on starting a business. The workshop, titled “Ready, Set…Wait! – Preparing to Start Your Own Business” will be held from 6-9 p.m. at the Honeycutt Center, which is located at 600 McLean St. in Laurinburg.

Brisson will introduce attendees to the “business model concept,” which provides a practical way to sculpt your startup into a successful ongoing business.

“You have three options when you start a business: succeed, succeed, succeed.” says Brisson. “Who wants to sacrifice their time, money and effort in order to fail?”

Brisson operates an accounting business in Salisbury, N.C. and has a passion for educating business owners. She often finds that aspiring business owners and those in the startup phase may put great effort in preparing to start a business but “drop the ball” after the business opens.

“They may rough out some numbers, do some research and even prepare a business plan – going to great lengths to put the required pieces together before launching a business.” says Brisson. “They think they are ready and set. But what happens after that is what will make you or break you.”

“Ready, Set…Wait!” is a free seminar sponsored by the Richmond Community College Small Business Center. For more information about the workshop, contact Deborah Hardison at ddhardison@richmondcc.edu or 910-410-1687.
