Online ZOOM Meeting
Map and Directions


April 30th, 2020
Start Time: 9:00 am
End Time: 12:00 pm

Many are considering starting a home-based or online business in this time.  To start your own business you need to know the questions to ask, structure types, how to register in Oklahoma, preparation of the business plan, understanding business financials, managing people and business functions, and the steps to getting financed.  Federal, state, and local resources will also be discussed in this session.  This online seminar is a broad overview of the different areas to consider when starting a new business.  There will be time allotted to ask questions of the instructors and interactive group discussion.

This workshop will be conducted online using ZOOM Meeting. Prior to the start of the workshop, you will be emailed instructions for logging into the meeting.  If you opt to call in to the number provided, you will be unable to “see” all the features, but will be able to hear the webinar. If possible, we encourage you to take full advantage of the interactive training by using the link provided in the registration confirmation email you will receive prior to the training to join us “in person” using your phone or computer’s camera.
