Attending a workshop to get some fresh ideas

Every other Sunday, the Business Development Center on Oak Avenue offers a free business education seminar or workshop.

Sometimes the workshop fills up really early, especially when they offer a free class on QuickBooks, TurboTax, or PowerPoint.

A few months ago, my friends and I signed up to attend a workshop on internet marketing ideas. The Business Development Center is only a short drive from my apartment, so my friends and I got up early and arrived on time. We stopped for breakfast on the way, and I had some pancakes, scrambled eggs, ham, bacon, and hash browns. The Business Development Center parking lot was jam-packed by the time we arrived. It’s a good thing that we signed up for the class early, because it filled up quickly. They had to turn people away, because there was no more room in the class area. The Business Development Center brought a special keynote speaker to talk with us about Internet advertising and marketing strategies. The class lasted 3 hours, and the speaker was still taking questions at noon. I took three long pages of notes, and I was especially attentive during the internet marketing portion of the seminar. I’ve been trying to build up our online presence, but it’s been a slow process. I learned a lot from the seminar, and my friends and I have a lot of great ideas to help our business.
