The Small Business Center at Haywood Community College will offer a free seminar entitled, “Business Planning for Business Success” on Wednesday, March 27, from 6-9 pm on campus in the Student Center, first floor.

This workshop is a timely offering as the Haywood Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a Business Start Up Competition with an award(s) made up to $10,000. Deadline for submission of your business plan to the Haywood Chamber is April 26, 2013. An important aspect of this competition is to encourage would-be business owners to plan in detail because many businesses fail due to lack of planning.

You will be able to study the steps to actually writing your plan and learn how to cover what you really need in a short but useable plan. Learn simple techniques for writing an effective business plan.  Discover what really needs to be there, what detracts from your message, how to say what's important, and how to use your plan to communicate your business idea to lenders, investors, customers, vendors, and others.  Also, learn the most effective method for improving your business plan.

Russ Seagle of Seagle Management Consulting, Cullowhee, NC is the presenter. Seagle brings his many years of business experience and humor and is a frequent and popular presenter. For more information or to preregister for this free program, call the Small Business Center at 627-4512.
