From Side Hustle to Small Business


Have you been thinking about turning your hobby into a business, but aren’t sure where to start?  Do you have a side hustle that’s grown and you want to explore next steps? Are you interested in learning more about how to explore a business idea you have?  This session will teach you how to use a visual business planning tool call the Business Model Canvas. This tool will help you understand how 9 functional areas of business work together to create a model of operation that can help you determine whether it is time to take the leap to full-time.  The class will also give you information about resources and next steps.
