Hey, Entrepreneurs: Free Seminars

timv's picture
I followed a link to the Small Business Center at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College because they're offering two seminars on biodiesel fuel, which is what I'm working with in my current graduate research. But they're also offering a number of other free seminars this summer, and there seem to be a fair number of small-business operators, self-employed folks, and other entrepreneurial types among the roadskater.net crowd. So maybe some of you NC dwellers will find this interesting. And the operative word here is free.
SALISBURY, N.C. — The Small Business Center at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College has announced its schedule of upcoming free seminars. These programs are offered for people thinking about starting a small business or currently operating their own business.

Follow-up on Biodiesel Workshop

I didn't make it to the free biodiesel workshop at RCCC yesterday (and didn't skate either because it rained all evening) but here's email list feedback from someone who went:

Just a note on the 'Biodiesel workshop' (tongue in cheek) last night in RCCC. It was a waste of time. Mostly a soft sale for the FuelMeister. Guy was in the FuelMeister business and also had some misinformation on good websites. They have another workshop listed in Carbarrus I think coming up. Dont waste your time.

I don't know anything about FuelMeister biodiesel processing equipment and I can't vouch for the guy who posted the review of the seminar, or say if and how that reflects on the other seminars, but I thought I ought to pass it along.

Importing/Exporting in a Small Business Way Sounds Good

Seminar 7 on small business importing/exporting sounds pretty good. I wonder if it will be. Too bad it's not in the Kannapolis Train Station. Sounds fun. Of course getting there on the train and back on the same day might not work out right, but might be worth a look. I wonder if that is importing manufactured goods and exporting the flattened cardboard back as seems common now?
