October 4, 2018

Small-business entrepreneurs in Wyoming looking to start their own businesses can receive a basic overview of what the process entails.

The Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) offers a workshop, titled “Start Your Own Business,” Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 6-8 p.m. at Central Wyoming College (CWC) in Lander.

The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

This workshop will explore the pros and cons of owning a business, and evaluate the skills and knowledge necessary for success. This workshop will cover testing the feasibility of a business idea; identifying target markets; financing options; and creating a business plan.

Hamlin has a marketing and operations background with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Denver; an MBA from Colorado State University; and a certificate in social media marketing from State University of New York-Plattsburgh.
