With unemployment and job dissatisfaction on the rise, more people are looking to start their own business. But, starting a business or figuring out how to improve or grow a small business can be a daunting task. In Northeast Texas, a new class will provide local residents with training to meet these needs. “How to Start Your Own Business” will be Friday, June 29. “Take Your Business to New Heights” will be Saturday, June 30. See the June 28 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for details on how to attend these classes.
