Oakland County events focus on small biz growth

August is small business owners month in Oakland County, or at least it seems that way from the two workshops to be held at the Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center.

The
workshops include “Fiscal Fitness for the Growing Business” (Aug. 26)
and “FastTrac Listening to your Business” (Aug 28). Fiscal Fitness is a
one-on-one, confidential, financial management consulting process
designed to strengthen financial literacy and improve capital access.
Think of it as a crash course about business finances and funding from
a private tutor for CEOs of businesses at least two years old.

FastTrac
focuses on creating and sticking to a long-term vision, goals, and
strategy while still maintaining the day-to-day responsibilities of
running a business.

Both events will be held between 8 a.m. and
12:30 p.m. Fiscal Fitness will be held at Fifth Third Bank, 1000 Town
Center, in Southfield. Registration costs $75 and can be done here.
FastTrac will be in the Oakland County Business Center – Executive
Office Building in Waterford. Admission costs $95. For information,
