"How to Start a Business the Right Way" Join us for this informative workshop!

Do you dream of starting your own business? Do you feel that you're ready to take that leap but you're not sure what to do or how to get started? Perhaps you are an Entrepreneur but you need some help and fresh ideas to get you moving along. Then join us for this incredible meetup.

Our special guest speaker will be Renee Watson. She is Program Manager for Bexar County's Small, Miniority, Women, and Veteran Owned Business Enterprise ( SMWBE) and she also serves as Liaison for the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program here in San Antonio. Ms. Watson was recently honored with the SBA Women in Business Champion Award in May and it is one of many fitting honors for her work in our community in regards to small business. 

Some of the questions Ms. Watson will be addressing will be:

1) How do I register my business name and get a DBA?

2) Where do I get an Employer Identification Number (EIN)?

3) Where do I get a State of Texas Sales Tax permit?

4) Where can I get information on permits needed for my business?

5) Where can I get training or counseling on starting a business and/or writing a business plan?

These and many more questions will be addressed during our Q & A time.

Please remember this is limited to Women Only, no children are allowed at this event so please plan accordingly.

Do not miss this wonderful opportunity to meet and learn what you need to know to get your business started successfully, seating is limited, RSVP today!

A special "thank you" to Johnny Carino's for sponsoring our event and for believing in the power of Women in Business.
