Running your own business can be a rewarding experience. You can be your own boss, achieve your dreams and enjoy greater flexibility. However, it can also mean exposure to new risks, challenges and frustrations. Before you start your business, it is important to consider the realities you may face and make sure that you, your loved ones, and your finances are prepared for the journey.
If you are thinking about starting your own business, join us for Be Your Own Boss on Friday, May 25, 9:00am–5:00pm, at Impact HUB Oakland. In this one-day bootcamp, you will take a deeper look at your personal goals and whether starting a business could help you achieve them. You will also look at what you need to have in place to make a sustainable transition to business ownership. Lastly, you will hear from entrepreneurs about their experience in stepping out on their own.
