Re: Hello?/teaching / Business plan


Gene- Charlotte is definitely showing me that I can't do without a business
plan. Last year was sort of hap-hazard, flying by the seat of my pants. I
did ok, but I know I would have done a lot better had I been more organized.
This business plan is helping me with that for sure. We have a small
business administration center here at the University and they do give
classes so I will check into that for sure. I do like having my very own
teacher though, and it was fun last week to go over everything with her.
It's amazing what we can learn when we are actually interested in the
subject! I hated college classes my first go round. LOL!
