Virginia Beach Public Library (VBPL) is launching classes for those who are considering starting a new business or who started a business in the last two years.
A 10-week series, “Start Smart: How to Build a Business and Get Paying Customers,” begins Oct. 3 at the Bayside & Special Services Library, 936 Independence Blvd. in Virginia Beach.
Taught by Norfolk, Va.-based business and marketing consultant Marla Schuchman, each weekly, two-hour session focuses on a topic of business ownership, such as customer development, branding, management tools, problem-solving and more. Participants may opt to attend a few individual classes or, for a more intensive, hands-on experience, attend all 10 classes in the series.
