Our Classes

Manage your small business with confidence.

We offer a variety of small business training programs to fit your needs – from just starting out to running an established business with employees.

Each training program includes:

  • Experienced subject-matter experts that cover critical components of running a small business, like understanding financials, managing employees, developing operating procedures, attracting and keeping customers, and more.
  • One-on-one business advising to take what you learned in class and apply it directly to your business.
  • A dynamic cohort-learning environment in which you learn from and network with your peers and develop long-lasting connections.

To learn more, reserve your seat in one of our New Client Orientations.

IDEA: You have an idea for a business, but it isn’t off the ground yet. You may have some of the pieces in place or a working plan but aren’t yet in business. This is sometimes also called “pre-venture”.

LAUNCH: Your business is up and running. You may not yet be profitable and things still feel new.

EXPANSION: Your business is generating a consistent source of income and you regularly see new customers. You are looking at new opportunities for your business.

RENEWAL: Business conditions, leadership and other factors can lead to changes in direction. This is a time to look at new processes and big decisions to move the business forward. It is often when businesses pursue new avenues for growth.

EXIT: You are ready to make a big change in the business and exit to new opportunities. Business succession plans need to be identified early to achieve your desired outcomes.

BUSINESS CONCEPT & PRODUCT: Creating and refining your business concept toward products & services that have growth potential and revenue models that propel your business.

CUSTOMER RELATIONS & BRANDING: Finding the right customers, understanding community demographics and building a brand that enhances public relations, marketing and networking are critical to your success.

Have you ever thought about starting your own business? Perhaps you are retired or you have been laid off, and you're looking for some extra income or something to keep you busy. Encore Entrepreneurship is on the rise for people like you. Never before has it been easier for 50+ individuals to monetize their knowledge, skills, and experience into a rewarding small business.

Or, you became an ENCORE or Solo entrepreneur because you love what you do. But, you're doing it all. And getting bogged down in running your business can cause you to lose track of the passion that got you started. There is another way.

From marketing to invoicing, do you ever wonder how you got into this mess? ENCORE and Solo are designed specifically for those over 50 starting a business or wanting to focus on growing and developing their business so that the business gives them the results they want.

-Share ideas and solve problems. Working as a solo entrepreneur can be lonely and isolating. You'll meet fellow solos to learn about the keys to success and overcoming common problems. Keep yourself accountable to your goals.

-Work one-on-one with an advisor to take action. Need a sounding board? You'll meet with your advisor regularly to develop an action plan, track your progress, and work on problems you encounter along the way.

-Find clarity, focus on your mission. We'll help you clearly define your mission, services and products, and your target market. With this focus, you'll be able to navigate opportunities and challenges, ultimately increasing your sales.

-Refine your business model. Entrepreneurs need a different business model. Learn about the Waterbug Model and how to build a network of Entrepreneurs, and focus on doing what you love. Work smarter, not harder.

Have you ever thought about starting your own business? Perhaps you are retired or you have been laid off, and you're looking for some extra income or something to keep you busy. Encore Entrepreneurship is on the rise for people like you. Never before has it been easier for 50+ individuals to monetize their knowledge, skills, and experience into a rewarding small business.

Or, you became an ENCORE or Solo entrepreneur because you love what you do. But, you're doing it all. And getting bogged down in running your business can cause you to lose track of the passion that got you started. There is another way.

From marketing to invoicing, do you ever wonder how you got into this mess? ENCORE and Solo is designed specifically for those over 50 starting a business or wanting to focus on growing and developing their business so that the business gives them the results they want.

-Share ideas and solve problems. Working as a solo entrepreneur can be lonely and isolating. You'll meet fellow solos to learn about the keys to success and overcoming common problems. Keep yourself accountable to your goals.

-Work one-on-one with an advisor to take action. Need a sounding board? You'll meet with your advisor regularly to develop an action plan, track your progress, and work on problems you encounter along the way.

-Find clarity, focus on your mission. We'll help you clearly define your mission, services and products, and your target market. With this focus, you'll be able to navigate opportunities and challenges, ultimately increasing your sales.

-Refine your business model. Entrepreneurs need a different business model. Learn about the Waterbug Model and how to build a network of Entrepreneurs, and focus on doing what you love. Work smarter, not harder.
