Tomorrow I’m going to the SCORE workshop here in Wichita. It’s a session on starting and growing your own small business. In my case, a one person consulting, training and speaking business. Mostly, I want to be sure I’m familiar with whatever is unique about being a business in Kansas, and I hope to make some good contacts there.
They only hold these workshops one Saturday a month, and this is the first Saturday in 5 months where I wasn’t otherwise engaged somewhere (usually Kansas City).
I definitely need to move through these next steps to get my business off of the ground. Especially since I’ve had some expenses already this year, and need to take advantage of the tax break based on my current “losses”.
One important note there: 2009 will be the one and only year I claim a business loss. That’s right…I said it.
