Be Your Own Boss: Online Class Application Deadline

Be Your Own Boss, a 4-week online class that runs on Tuesdays from 6:00 – 8:00pm, January 14 – February 4.

Running your own business can be a rewarding experience. You can be your own boss, achieve your dreams and enjoy greater flexibility.

However, it can also mean exposure to new risks, challenges and frustrations.

Before you start your business, it is important to consider the realities you may face and make sure that you, your loved ones, and your finances are prepared for the journey.

In our Be Your Own Boss online class, you’ll take a deeper look at your personal goals and whether starting a business can help you achieve them.

You’ll also look at what you need to have in place to make a sustainable transition to business ownership.
