Every great business starts with a good idea. But what do you do next to insure success?

In this free “Business Basics” workshop presented by SCORE, "Counselors to America's Small Business," you’ll explore the key steps that help turn a business opportunity into an entrepreneurial journey.

Workshop presenter Craig Ferrer has an unusual insight into all the issues that small businesses face, including credit lines, customer service, maintaining sales and finding new customers. From his background in international trade where he purchased fabric and garments overseas, Craig then started his own company expanding import products to include those from ten other countries including fabric and ready-made garments sold to wholesalers in the United States. Craig is a SCORE counselor and lives in along the shoreline.
