A business plan is the story of your business, according to Plans & Profits LLC, and is essential to the success of every new or existing business. Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) is offering three identical workshops beginning in April on Writing a Business Plan, sponsored by Sullivan County SCORE. Participants starting a new business or building on existing knowledge can benefit from this opportunity.

Charlene Finerty of Plans & Profits will present the ins and outs of writing a customized business plan, and getting one step closer to a successful start-up. Workshops are held on April 19 (5:30 - 7:30 pm), September 6 (1-3 pm), and November 29 (10 am - 12 pm), 2017 at the Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.

Space is limited and registration with non-refundable payment is required in advance. Partial scholarships are available with support from Sullivan Renaissance.
