Event Flyer

Baton Rouge, LA – Citizens in the Washington Parish area that are interested in owning a small business or already own one, there will be a seminar to enhance one’s knowledge. 

Eual Hall, Business Development Outreach Specialist for the Center for Rural and Small Business Development at the Southern University Ag Center, will be conducting a workshop for small business owners and interested persons on how to start a small business or maximize it. The workshop will be held on September 22 at the Vernon School Recreation Center, 24649 Vernon School Rd., in Mt. Hermon, LA. This seminar will inform participants on the steps it takes to own a small business and manage its longevity. Participants are to be at the center from promptly 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“It’s important for people in the Washington Parish area to come and learn how to start a business because it is essential for people to know the process of owning a small business,” said Hall.

The Center for Rural and Small Business Development’s purpose is to assist those that do not know the necessary steps it takes to run a small business. The process is strenuous and it comes down to having knowledge about the business, personal goals and as well as preparation. It is a lifelong goal that is possible to achieve. Mr. Hall skips the researching phase and initiates a classroom setting so it could be taught clearly and efficiently to the many people of the surrounding area. Participants will learn how to register their business, create financial statements, recognize monthly business expenses, categorize income statements and review profit and loss statements. 

For additional information or to reserve a seat, contact Mr. Eual Hall at 225-771-4105 or Ms. Barbara Brumfield at 985-839-2190.
