Openings Still Available for SCORE In-Depth Workshops

SCORE is a nationwide nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow, and succeed.  SCORE provides free and confidential counseling to entrepreneurs on policies, procedures, and problems in the realm of small business. The great news? Pottstown has its own SCORE office of seasoned, successful business leaders who volunteer their time to help others succeed, too.

People starting out in business frequently have the same questions: Who is my largest competitor?  How can I drive customers to my website?  What is the difference between an LLC and a Sole Proprietorship?

In an effort to provide entrepreneurs with cutting-edge information, Pottstown SCORE is offering three separate In-Depth workshops for the fall.

The first workshop, “Using Reference USA” is presented in collaboration with the Pottstown Regional Public Library.  The workshop, which will be held at 7 pm on September 17 at the library on 500 East High Street, will instruct participants how to use a database to research information pertaining to customers and competitors.

A second workshop, “Social and Mobile Equation” will give participants up-to-date secrets of successful marketing using social media and mobile technology.  This workshop will be presented at       7 pm on October 8 at the SCORE office on the basement level of the New York Plaza building in Pottstown.

In the third workshop, “Sole Proprietor, Partnership, Corporation,” participants will learn to avoid legal pitfalls in starting a business.  A lawyer and a CPA will be available to answer questions about the legal and tax considerations for different business structures.  This workshop will be presented at 7 pm on October 30 at the SCORE office in the New York Plaza building, 244 High Street, Pottstown.

There is a nominal fee for each workshop, and a discount of 50% is offered for a second person registering at the same time.  Class size is limited, but there are still openings available.  Applicants may sign up online at www.pottstownscore.org or phone the SCORE office at 610-327-2673 for more information.
