    As a business owner, you have products and services to sell.

    Nobody likes to be sold anything, but everyone likes to buy things. Learn the fine art of Subtle Selling at this Almost Free Biz School.

    The small price of admission will return knowledge that you can use to improve your business performance and efficiency.

    I highly recommend this educational opportunity.

    When you start a business, you have a choice. You can ask people who know more than you do for advice or you can do it yourself.

    If you try to DIY to set up your books, point of sales system, create a web site, write a business plan to get a loan, or market yourself, etc. without fully understanding how to do all or either of them WELL, your chance of making a mistake is greater. If you ask any small business owner, that is one of our major observations about our clients.

    If you ask experts for help, chances are you will save time and money in the long run. At least that is what one client told me the other day.

    Would you rather spend $50 and get a free lunch and learn or call me in six months from now for several hundred dollars to fix what you mucked up.

    You wouldn't climb on your roof to fix it, represent yourself in court on a civil or criminal case, or rewire your house. Why do the same for your new business?

    It is your money and business. As Indiana Jones was advised, "Choose wisely." So should you.

    My class will be focusing on creating a good set of books for your new business, how to avoid the top ten mistakes I sees many of my clients make, how to make your choice of accounting software or system work for you, and how to tie your accounts with various IRS tax forms lines so you can save on accountant’s fees.

    Last year when I went to this event, I was dipping my toes in the marketing waters. Renton Biz School not only provided me with a ton of information, it also gave me the enthusiasm to get on that diving board and plunge into the deep end. I am now blogging and my website has a pretty good place on google. I highly recommend it!! Thank you Renton Biz School. PJ Harris. LMP
