Square One Virtual Seminar Offers Financial Guidance to Small Businesses

On Friday, October 23, at 9:00 a.m., Mid-Continent Public Library’s Square One Small Business Services, in partnership with the Clay County Economic Development Council and the City of North Kansas City, will offer a free, two-hour virtual seminar on grants and other financial support programs available to small businesses and how to take advantage of them.

Led by local CPA Marquita Miller-Joshua, the program Where Does the Money Go? will be held live on the Square One Facebook page and will cover:

  • Financial documents needed to compete for funding
  • Simple accounting processes you can start immediately
  • Business banking for beginners
  • Taxes made simple

“Making smart financial decisions can mean the difference between success and failure, especially during this current economic downturn,” said Square One’s Morgan Perry. “This workshop is intended to help local small business owners navigate common financial pitfalls and take advantage of available resources.”

After her presentation, Miller will be available for Q&A, followed by an “Entrepreneur Storytime” with Carol Taylor, President of local construction firm A Clean Slate. Taylor will share how her business has overcome various challenges to succeed. More details about the program and registration can be found on the Library’s website. Fifteen attendees will also have the opportunity to win an individual, 60-minute consultation session with Miller.

This program is made possible by funding from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
