REAP Women's Business Center: Eight trainings recently completed, more planned

Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP) Women’s Business Center continues to partner with local organizations to offer “Online Marketing Strategies.”

In June, training sessions were held in O’Neill, Valentine, Ainsworth, and Alma.

We also offered a “Facebook for Business” session in Sidney.

One key to business success is accurate and timely recordkeeping. QuickBooks trainings were held in O’Neill and Hartington this spring.

A “Business Plan Basics” course was offered in Walthill in cooperation with the City of Walthill.

More training sessions are coming up in the future.

A session on sales/use tax will be held in Beatrice in September. Marketing Strategies is planned for Hebron in September. QuickBooks will be offered in Atkinson in October.
