Eye-Opening Training Helps Entrepreneurs with their Business

The Center for Rural Affairs' REAP Women’s Business Center has been co-sponsoring Business Plan Basics sessions this spring.

A few of the comments participants have made include: 

  • “Lots of information. The budgeting and start up costs were an eye-opener.” 
  • “It made me think about things I hadn’t.” 
  • “I learned answers to questions I had about starting a business.” 
  • “It gave me a lot more direction in the planning for starting my business. I learned so much about starting a business that I had no clue about.”

Our partners in Broken Bow included the Chamber of Commerce, Custer County Economic Development, Sargent Area Economic Development, Callaway Chamber of Commerce, and Arnold Economic Development Corporation. We teamed with NGage (Gage Area Growth Enterprise), Main Street Beatrice, and Beatrice Area Chamber of Commerce in the Beatrice area. A session is underway in North Platte, partnering with Mid-Plains Center for Enterprise. Another training is in the works for Northeast Nebraska.

We have also been offering Online Marketing Strategies workshops across Nebraska. If you are looking for information on building your online relationships using websites, email marketing, and social media venues, be sure to watch for this session in your area.
