Free Webinars for Veterans

As published by the US SBA, there are free webinars available to veterans throughout August:

The Small Business Administration has decided to present free webinars for veterans and members of the military who are interested on the topic of small business ownership. The information presented during the webinars will be relevant to small business, especially veteran-owned small businesses. On Wednesday, July 30th, there will be a webinar discussing franchising opportunities for veterans who own and operate their own business. Veterans can gain valuable information on the incentives and opportunities the franchise industry gives to veterans. Chris Coleman from FranNet will be leading the conversation.

On Wednesday, August 6th, the Small Business Administration will be presenting a webinar on worker classification, in particular, whether small businesses should take on someone as an employee or independent contractor. The presentation will also discuss how you can request a determination form the IRS on this matter, in addition to other resources the IRS offers. Melody Green and Doug Blade from Internal Revenue Service will be conducting the presentation.

The next presentation will be held on Wednesday, August 20, where Deb Weis from SCORE will be discussing how to choose the correct social media platform for your business. This presentation will be about learning how to choose the right social media platform that is specifically tailored to your business based on what your goals are.

The final webinar will be held on Wednesday, August 27th, with the topic of discussion being teaming strategies for advanced small businesses. The discussion will be led by Josh Frank from RSM Federal and is for entrepreneur, novice, and experienced business professionals who operate or plan to operate in the federal space. This presentation is built to provide techniques to differentiate and grow competitive advantage with small and large business. The information is designed to help you quicken you business’s teaming strategy by as much as five years.
