Joint Business Planning Series Announced

The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce, along with Francis Marion University’s Kelley Center for Economic Development, have partnered to present a small business development series for individuals looking to start a business and for current business owners.  The three-session program will offer advice on improving existing operations and details to understand before you try to start a new business.  It’s always a good idea to be prepared before starting a professional venture because strategies don’t always go as planned. Things will go wrong and being prepared will help establish the fundamentals to adapt.  This business series is meant to offer much of the informational background needed to help entrepreneurs who want to learn how to write a business plan and how to adjust to the financial hurdles likely to be encountered along the way. We will also cover understanding and using financial statements as well as the lending process and financial options for small businesses.
