    Business Ownership Exploration - Pathways to Entry
    Are you exploring business ownership - either in addition to, or as an alternative to, traditional employment - but not quite sure (1) how to get started, or (2) if you’ve covered all your bases?
    This interactive workshop:
    • Compares and contrasts the 3 primary routes to entry for new business ownership: BUILD from scratch, BUY an existing business, or JOIN a franchise;
    • Helps you build a decision-making framework for selecting the right kind of business.
    If you are trying to decide whether business ownership is right for you, then you won’t want to miss this workshop!
