SBA Web Chat Series Will Offer Tips for Women

Are you a woman who is ready to start or expand a small business? Now’s a good time to take that first step, with help from a U.S. Small Business Administration series of four web chats during October, which is also National Women’s Small Business Month.   

Each week in October, SBA’s web chat series will feature experts who will give advice to women on how to put together business plans, navigate the challenges of entering competitive markets, and establish the foundation for a successful, profitable enterprise.

 Here’s a list of the web chats, and the corresponding links:
