Essential Steps to Starting Your Business

Taking the first step to starting your business can be difficult! There are many questions that must be answered as a business owner when opening a new business and you want to be sure you are following ALL rules and regulations. This workshop will be a realistic starting point for all budding entrepreneurs. The two-hour workshop will be PACKED and FAST PACED. We will investigate many questions and cover best practices for topics, such as:

  • What are the organizational and licensing requirements?
  • What resources should I explore?
  • Who should I market to and who is my competition?
  • Do I have the right amount of capital to start this business?

At the end, you will have a good feel for the level of effort and commitment it will take to make your business successful. If you’re serious about starting a business, you don’t want to miss this workshop!

He grew the courier company over the next 22 years before taking on investors and transitioning into a business development role until his exit in 2018. Throughout his career Dolgin has become expert in team building and small business planning and execution.
He has learned much through both listening and doing; and has developed a real passion for working with other small business owners on issues that they encounter. Larry and Gidge have two grown kids who are their pride and joy…for reals.
