Nationally, entrepreneurship is more popular than ever; however, the journey to owning and operating a small business is not for everyone. Whether you’ve recently started a small business or you’re considering taking the leap, there are likely obstacles in existence that may be stalling your progress.

Ultimately, the goal of most small business owners is to succeed. SCORE, a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals, is offering a workshop to help you determine whether you have what it takes to create a thriving business. Among the topics included are:

What will it take to be successful?

Risk involved and obstacles that will be in your path.

Taking a job or a hobby to a business.

Seven myths about starting a small business.

SCORE is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and functions with a network of over 11,000 volunteers made up of former and current business executives, entrepreneurs and corporate leaders.
