Free classes aid small businesses in Birmingham

September 24, 2010

Main Street Birmingham Inc. is a public-private partnership focusing on creating new business and job opportunities in Birmingham, Alabama, by focusing resources on redevelopment and enhancement of historic neighborhood commercial districts.

The organization recently launched an Entrepreneurial Workshop Series, a FREE nine-workshop curriculum that will help business owners navigate the process of researching, planning, launching and running a small business. Those interested can join the series at any time.

“With this series, we’re formalizing the training and services we’ve been providing entrepreneurs for years,” said Main Street Birmingham Executive Director David Fleming, according to the website. “Now small business owners and entrepreneurs will have a system they can follow to get started on the right track.”

Trudy Phillips, a noted small business trainer, will be coordinating the workshops. Each topic will be presented twice on the east and west sides of Birmingham, and registration is open now for all sessions through the end of the year.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 28 — How to Reach More Customers
  • Tuesday, Nov. 9 — Basic Accounting and Cash Flow
  • Tuesday, Nov. 23 — Leasing Space and Equipment
  • Friday, Dec. 10 — Taxes: What You May Not Know
