MINORITY BUSINESS COUNCIL HOSTING FINANCIAL LITERARY COURSE
By WVUA 23 Web Writer Evan Reier
The Minority Business Council of Tuscaloosa is continuing to help minority business owners and others with their new financial literary course.
The workshop takes place on Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tuscaloosa Career and Technology Center. The cost of the event is $10 for Chamber of Commerce members, and $15 for non-members.
The two-hour financial literacy workshop covers a host of topics, including credit, capital, business plans, bookkeeping and more. For reservations, potential attendees can contact the Chamber of Commerce.
For minority business council member Michele Coley, the event is a perfect opportunity for people to learn all the technical aspects of a business and hopes that it will greatly benefit the community.
“It’s an opportunity for small business owners,” Coley said. “Whether they are a minority or any other type of small business owner to come in and find out the basics of a business: Credit 101, marketing and social media, how to develop a business plan… Just all the things you need to know to run your small business, whether you’re an upstart or whether you’ve been in business for a long time.”
