TAMIU-SBDC April
Business Workshops Continue

The Texas A&M International University Small Business Development Center (TAMIU-SBDC) will sponsor several workshops during the month of April.

Friday, April 20: How to Create a Digital Business Card (Website) for Your Business, is a hands-on workshop from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in TAMIU’s Dr. Billy F. Cowart Hall, room 113.  Today, entrepreneurs are lucky to have so many ways to be active online: blogs, social media profiles, and more. But every business needs an online “home base,” a place to call your own.  That home base is your website. It’s your welcome mat, your window display for visitors on the internet. At this informative hands-on workshop instructor Steve Gutierrez, Director of the Azteca Economic Development & Preservation Corporation, will cover the steps on how to create a website.  By the end of the session, you will walk out with your very own website!

Tuesday, April 24: Managing Cash - the Small Business Owner's Guide to Financial Control Workshop is scheduled from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at TAMIU’s Western Hemispheric Trade Center, room 126; $20 fee includes Workbook. Cash flow is what comes into and goes out of a business. Gaining financial control by understanding cash flow is crucial to business success. Norma Rodríguez, SBDC-certified business advisor, will review cash – the fuel that runs your business, maximizing your cash flow, tools for speeding up cash collections, overdue invoices, three tools for helping with accounts receivable, cash flow statements and four short-term financing solutions.

Thursday, April 26: the Art of Customer Service will be offered from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Student Center, room 120. Fee is $20. The purpose of the workshop is to learn the Art of Customer Service using the “CIVIL” framework.
