Simple Steps for Starting Your Business is a six-part series of pre-business workshops to help clients reach a “go or no-go” decision for a start-up. The content is designed to work in conjunction with mentoring and includes homework for the client to complete. The program is not designed to provide all of the information needed to start a business, but rather to help the client decide whether he or she is ready to take the next step toward becoming an entrepreneur.

This module will introduce you to key business considerations, such as the myths and realities of entrepreneurship, different business options to pursue, the components of business ownership, legal and financial considerations, and the business plan basics.
