Event Details

Don't become a small business statistic!

Of all the new business startups, 1/3 eventually turn a profit, 1/3 break even, and 1/3 never leave a negative earnings scenario. According to a study by the U.S. Small Business Association, only 2/3 of all small business startups survive the first two years and less than half make it to five years.  

What does it take to succeed?

Facilitated by ABC Master Bridal Consultants, Expanding Horizons  will provide you the tools and tips to help your wedding business “blossom.” Addressing business startup and growth issues encountered during the first years of business, seminar attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss elements of a business plan
  • Differentiate business structures.
  • Determine business startup expenses.
  • Prepare an advertising budget as part of a business marketing plan.
  • Determine how to establish fees.
  • Describe contract elements and negotiation skills

Take advantage of this opportunity to plant seeds for success, meet and network with ABC wedding experts, and prepare to “Let Your Business Blossom.”

ABC members now receive 2 educational point towards Education and Professional Development.  Don't miss out on this opportunity!
