"Be About Your Business" Small Business Seminars
Free Seminars
Be About Your Business small business seminars  was first implemented at Los Angeles Trade Tech College by Small Business Entrepreneurship Professor Artina McIntosh. Although she taught small business courses, she wanted to offer real-life practical small business information to those business owners who could not take her classes, or for the entrepreneur who did not want to go to college but desperately needed the information to start or grow their small business. Professor McIntosh "Be About Your Business" quickly grew in popularity, in fact it became so popular and well known that the Los Angeles Verterans Affairs adopted her "Be About Your Business"  seminars  as a mandatory element of their Small Business Program for Veterans. People came from San Francisco, San Diego and all over the State of California to attend Professor McIntosh's  "Be About Your Business" seminars.
Professor McIntosh is also the founder of "Empowering Success Now" and will now be offering " Be About Your Business" small business seminars  at her Fontana facility with the same concept of providing down to earth, real-life practical small business information. All of her students and clients always say  they prefer how she delivers the information and how much they learn from her versus other small business workshops and seminars.
