Many people with part-time business ideas have probably wondered if they could turn their ideas into lucrative side businesses.
A Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) business webinar, titled “Turn Your Part-Time Business into a Lucrative Side Hustle,” is scheduled online Thursday, June 14, from 2-3 p.m. Attendees can learn how “side-hustle entrepreneurship” works. Designer Bria Hammock has spent the last two years turning her graphic design sketches into a successful clothing brand called Go Slo Wyo.
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.
Hammock founded Go Slo Wyo, a premium apparel and accessories brand that celebrates her love of the outdoors and everything unique about Wyoming. She also works full time as a senior graphic designer with West Edge Collective in Cheyenne. During the webinar, Hammock will discuss how she found a niche for her brand; how she was able to get her marketing noticed; and provide a behind-the-scenes look at how she manages a full-time job, family and her side hustle.
This webinar is $15, and attendees must register at www.wyomingsbdc.org to obtain the link. The program will be recorded and available to registered attendees who are unable to attend.
SBDC Network programs and services are available to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. Reasonable accommodations will be made for people with disabilities, if requested at least two weeks in advance. For clients with limited English proficiency, language assistance services are available. For more information, call the SBDC at (307) 382-0947.
