Online (Link in the description)

Free Virtual Event

We are called to be creators, not just consumers. When we start a micro-business, we are innovating and creating opportunities for ourselves and others—creating more space to grow and give. Micro-businesses—companies with annual sales and assets valued at less than $250,000 and fewer than five employees, including the owner—thrive in a home-based environment. What are you already doing for free that could be channeled into a micro-business? Graphic design? Dog walking? Babysitting? Writing? Yard work? Sewing? Teaching? If creating a business like this sounds exciting, join us to learn some basic building blocks of starting a micro-business.
