How to Thrive as a POC Small Biz Owner: Organize Your Business Like a Machine

About This Event

One out of five businesses fail in the first two years and one of the main reasons why is not having a clear system for running your business. Usually, most of us go into business to solve a problem or fill a need.

We never anticipated we’d also have to be our own accountant, bookkeeper, human resources, insurance specialist, and personal assistant too! This workshop will help you set up your business to run like a machine.

We’ll go deep on topics around cash flow, taxes, invoicing, loans, bank accounts, insurance, retirement, etc. You know, the fun stuff :)

We were all hit hard by the pandemic, but Black-owned businesses were hit the hardest. 41% of Black owned businesses shut down at the beginning of the pandemic vs. 17% of White owned businesses. POC businesses overall have a harder time accessing capital (including those PPP loans), less savings reserves, and are more likely to have funding gaps. The pandemic exposed the racial wealth divide in all aspects of our economy, especially our small businesses. Small business owners are some of the most creative and resilient folks out there. You know because you’re one of them. Through a generous grant, Brunch & Budget has partnered with GA to offer a small business workshop series designed to help POC build financially resilient businesses that can weather the most uncertain times.

The workshops include: Workshop 1: The One-Page Business Plan (10/21)

Workshop 2: Organize your Business like a Machine (11/18)

Workshop 3: The Road to Your First Hire (12/16)

Sign up for one, two, or all three of the workshops. The information is cumulative but you can jump in at any time and find past recordings on
