Your Bu$ine$$ Check-up – Finance & Funding Workshop
August 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm MSTFree
The CO+HOOTS Foundation presents Your Bu$ine$$ Check-up – the second session in our four-week Midweek MindTweak Finance & Funding Workshop. (Did you miss the first session in the series? No worries! You’re still welcome to attend this week.)
How healthy is your business when it comes to finance? Are you checking all the boxes? Where might you need to put a little more energy? Running a business is just like taking care of your body. You should probably get a check-up every once in a while.
In this workshop, participants will learn about the necessary financial steps they need to take to run, manage, and grow a business. Get a pulse on your business’ financial health with hands-on activities, tips, tricks, and conversations and leave with a clear plan of action for what to do next.
