There will be a free event on June 15 with the Small Business Administration (SBA) and several participating banks — Total Bank, Community Bank and First National Bank of South Miami  — elaborating on financing opportunities for small business owners.

“How to Become Very Successful as a Small Business Owner in South Florida: Tips from a Local Who Has Made It,” will be the topic of discussion at the June Community Outreach meeting on Tuesday, June 21. On Saturday, June 25, the EDC will offer a half-day workshop on How to Write and Fund a Business Plan.

Other great workshops that still are in the planning stages include Small Business Financing, Power Packed Marketing, and Hiring Right.
