Launching a Small Business

Create your dream job – working for yourself. Few people have what it takes to walk away from the stability of a “normal” job, but those who do have the chance to build a life, livelihood, and legacy for themselves. This course is for entrepreneurs in the dreaming stage, the launching stage, or the re-launching stage of a small business. It covers naming, branding, pricing, marketing, hiring, and scaling – all the basics to get a business on the right track for long-term success. This course is taught by a small business attorney who built his own successful business and helped launch other businesses all over the Pittsburgh area.

Legal Issues for Small Business

In a small business, your ability to navigate the law may determine whether you thrive or fail. Entrepreneurs have to wear lots of hats, including the General Counsel hat. The law is a powerful weapon that can either be used by you or against you. That’s why it’s important to know how to deal with the most common legal issues facing small businesses: formation & structure, hiring & firing, contracts & negotiation, risk & litigation, and special interest topics. This course is taught by a small business attorney who built his own successful business and helped launch other businesses all over the Pittsburgh area.

 

Both of these classes are expected to be great resources for business owners as well as an opportunity for them to network with each other and have specific questions answered. Registration is available for Launching a Small Business until February 8 and for Legal Issues for Small Businesses until February 22. This infographic summarizes some of the information that will be discussed in the second class.
