Loup City, Neb. - Existing, transitioning, and startup small business owners have an opportunity to examine their ventures in “Business Plan Basics,” a workshop organized by the Center for Rural Affairs’ Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP) Women’s Business Center.

Five sessions will be held on Wednesdays from Oct. 4 to Nov. 1, from 6 to 9 p.m., at Loup City Community Center, 803 “O” St., in Loup City, Nebraska.

The workshop series will focus on marketing, promotion/advertising, financial management, customer relations, and goal setting. REAP uses the Business Plan Basics NxLevel Guide for microentrepreneurs curriculum.

"Planning is key to success in business, and these five hands-on exploratory sessions are designed for those thinking of starting a business, businesses that need a boost, and business owners considering exiting the business," said Monica Braun, REAP Women’s Business Center director. “Sessions will cover important information to complete a business plan.”

The course will be facilitated by Judy Petersen, executive director of the Central Nebraska Economic Development District.
