Main Street offers business management course



Fitz said this will be the second time that the management course has been offered for local small business owners.

"We already held one class in 2012 and now they are fixing to go to level 2," she said.

She said the level 2 course "will be expanding even more on whey they learned in the first classes, plus it will take them into taxes and different things like that which they didn't learn in level 1."

Out of the 12 participants from the first management class, Fitz said 11 have returned to continue developing their skills.

"They got a lot out of it and want to keep learning," she said.

The Main Street director added that she hopes to keep the management courses going .

"I'd like to keep having 2 classes a year," she said, noting "once we get through with this year's level 1 class, they can go to level 2 and we'll start a new class."


For those interested in participating in the upcoming business management course, Fitz encouraged them to call her soon at 254-8521 to sign up.

"I'll take the first few who call me," she said, noting that as of Monday there were only 7 spots remaining.

The class is open to anyone who would like to improve their business management skills.

"I want to stress that they don't have to be a member of the Main Street program," Fitz said.  "If they want to take the class, I'll take them in.  Plus you never know when I'll get a new member out of it."

There is a literature fee charged per class, but Fitz said the fee is minimal compared to what someone may have to pay for a similar seminar offered through another program.  To find out more about the fee, contact Fitz at the number listed above.

"I think this is a great opportunity for small and new business owners to get some more education on how to run a business," she said.
