Town Hall--What's the Small Business Development Center & What Can it do for me?

Mark your calendars for a Town Hall discussion ‘What’s a Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and What Can it Do for Me’? We’ll meet in the Long for Success room in the Small Business Town Hall on Tuesday, August 18, at 1:00 pm PT (4:00 pm ET).

Michelle L. Long, CPA will be the moderator. Michelle is the founder of Long for Success, LLC and an Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor, one of the national trainers for Intuit and author of the book Successful QuickBooks Consulting.

Special guests from Johnson County Community College Small Business Development Center in Overland Park, Kansas, include:
· Malinda Bryan-Smith – Regional Director
· John Andessi – Consultant

Discussion topics include:
· What is the Small Business Development Center?
· How can it help me grow my business and be more productive?
· How to find an SBDC near you
· Links and resources
· Most importantly—your questions!!!

You can type your question into the chat window or use a webcam and/or mic (about $20) to join in the conversation!

Here are a couple of links to join, but I’ll post again next week as a reminder. Click Under Small Business Experts -- Long for Success and type in your screen name to join the room.

There is no need to register in advance or sign up, just type in your screen name to enter the room. When you enter the room, it may ask if you want to allow access to your web cam and/or mic. You can Allow or Deny. If you Allow access, then you can click on 'Request to Speak' and you'll be put in the speaker's que. When you're finished you click on 'Stop Speaking' at the bottom of that window and the it will go to the next person in the que.

If you don't want to speak up or use a web cam, you can type your questions or comments in a chat window on the right side.

Feel free to go into the room in advance to check it out and see how it works. You can even try out your webcam to see yourself & how it works!

I'm looking forward to it and think it is a great way to have discussions and Q&A with others!!!
