Seminar to Help Entrepreneurs Launch Their Big Ideas

Posted on Friday, February 18, 2011 [8:42 AM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Have a blockbuster idea for a great new product or service?

A Lindsey Wilson College professor with expertise on starting and running small businesses will lead a seminar on Feb. 24 to tell people how to turn that idea into reality.

LWC Assistant Professor of Business Al Efferstein will lead a session at 11 a.m. CT on Thursday, Feb. 24, at Mulligan's at the Pines at Lindsey Wilson, 275 Country Club Road.

Efferstein's Feb. 24 seminar is the first of free eight LWC presentations called "Build Your Own Job," which focus on how people can build and operate their own small business.

Efferstein will provide the basics an aspiring business owner should put into a business plan to clarify ideas and start the process of getting investment capital.

Efferstein's approach, built on 10 critical business-plan development questions, is designed to take the frustration out of what can be a costly and time-consuming process.

In addition to providing business tips, the seminars will be a good networking opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to share ideas with current business owners and entrepreneur-minded college students studying business, science and communication.

"Build Your Own Job" is the first step in developing LWC's Center for Entrepreneurship, a free resource staffed by professors and students to help budding local entrepreneurs implement their new-business plans.

The remaining schedule for "Build Your Own Job" is:

* March 24: Preparing a Marketing Plan

* April 14: Identifying Funding Resources

* May 11: Deciding On Compensation and Benefits

* June 9: Staffing

* Sept. 22:  Understanding Business Law

* Oct. 20:  Establishing Business Communications

* Nov. 17:  Accounting Practices and Programs.
