Local SCORE, NCCA to hold business workshop

The local SCORE chapter, a collaborative group of local business owners, is partnering with the Nevada County Contractor’s Association and the Greater Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce to hold a workshop titled “How to Become a Well-Run Business.”

“This class is especially designed to deal with issues that are common,” SCORE counselor Bill Duthler said. “(For example) too little business, how do I organize properly? How have some large companies like Apple and Starbucks succeeded? What can I do to make some headway in my small business? These are the things we will focus on.”

Held at the contractor’s association at 149 Crown Point Court in Grass Valley, the workshop will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday. The session aims to give business owners and entrepreneurs a better understanding of what critical operations lead to running a thriving business.

“We will not answer ‘all questions’ in business. Classes like these are somewhat general in nature,” Duthler said. “That said, we at SCORE know most of the right questions. Sometimes those are more important than having all the answers.”

Lunch will be provided at the event, and members of the contractor’s association or the chamber of commerce can attend the workshop for a $15 fee, while all non-members are charged $25. Presenters at the workshop include Duthler and Chico SCORE chair Jack Mayfield.

“When our attendees walk out they will have a few very strong suggestions about what to concentrate on next,” Duthler said. “What makes a difference and how to implement those ideas.”

Duthler added, “We think this overview of how to become a well-run business is very helpful for business owners who are not making the progress they want to make.”
