Here at SMG Business Services, we believe that every goal is a financial goal. 💸 Whether your goal is short-term or long-term, it comes with financial implications for your bank account. If you wanted to run for a marathon, for example, you first get really excited about it 🤩🏃🏽♀️ and then you pay the registration fee, make you sure you have a sturdy pair of shoes and comfy running apparel, to say the least. While the dream of [insert your goal here] may not cost any money, achieving your goal often takes steps that have an effect on your money. Especially as business owners and people of color, the road toward our goals is anything but smooth. This is why we think it's important to be prepared for the roller coaster that is entrepreneurship. To support business owners in the early stages of entrepreneurship who face particular barriers to employment, we are currently delivering a FREE 6-week business introductory course, Project Thrive: Floreciendo tus Sueños. This workshop is in partnership with Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity, LEAD at Cal State San Bernardino, and the Consulate General of Mexico-San Bernardino, and is focusing on the following groups: Asylum seekers who have recently entered the country, Low-income, undocumented long-term residents, Monolingual Spanish speakers, Formerly incarcerated people, both immigrant and non-immigrant, and People recently released from immigration detention or jail. This entrepreneurial training development will
Increase understanding of legal options for entrepreneurship among the undocumented immigrant community of the Inland Empire.
Introduce the basics of entrepreneurship by providing a general understanding of what it means to be a business owner and offering community resources to support small businesses.
Educate participants on high-road economic development and encourage them to develop businesses that pay good wages, improve gender and racial equity, meet community needs, prioritize accountability and transparency, and are environmentally sustainable.
The English session begins on October 15 and we will be hosting an introductory session on September 24 at 4pm. This course will be a hybrid workshop, held both in-person and online via Zoom. Registration is now open at bit.ly/SeedRSVP. Please share this workshop opportunity with anyone you know that may benefit.
Every financial worry you want to banish and financial dream you want to achieve comes from taking tiny steps today that put you on a path toward your goals.
