Starting a Home Based Business

Starting a Home Based Business

Friday, April 28, 2017 9:00am to 12:00pm

What do Apple Computer, Hershey's, Mary Kay Cosmetics, and the Ford Motor Company have in common? These well-known corporations all started out as home-based businesses. In fact, more than half of all U.S. businesses are based out of an owner's home. This free seminar discusses several elements necessary for starting a successful home-based business. These elements include:

  • Business planning
  • Licenses and permits
  • Finances
  • Marketing, including websites and social media
  • Taxation
  • Work/Life balance

Understanding these issues is critical to becoming a successful home-based entrepreneur. This seminar is sponsored by the Alameda County Community Development Agency.
