Free Business Seminars

There is one incredible resource we often overlook: small business development centers. They offer free seminars and one-on-one consultations. They are put-on by highly regarded and established professionals in their respective fields.

Just tonight I went to a free seminar organised by SCORE. The topic was 'Selling Techniques That Work,' and the speaker was in charges of sales for FedEx, no less. Last week, I went to one entitled 'Marketing. How To Get And Keep Your Clients.' That speaker has done marketing for the likes of Nike and Apple Computers. He's worked side by side with Steve Jobs, probably the best marketing guy on the planet!! And guess what, this guy is available for one on one consultations for free. Well, he did say it might costs us a cup of coffee since his preferred meeting place is Starbucks.

So how do you find out about all this cool stuff? Start here. ASMP has kindly put together a long list of resources that business owners can tap into. Plenty to munch on...
