It takes years to build up expertise—years of trial and error, success and failure, highs and lows and hard work. Very few people see that work. By the time you call yourself an expert, you make it look easy. That doesn’t make the work go away, but it does make it hard to recognize.
When you start a small business, there are many things you must become an expert in very quickly. But you are not in this alone. There are other companies that have been where you are, and they will be sharing what they learned with you. Take advantage of the upcoming programing from the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance (GRCA), so you can learn new skills and gain tools to put your business on the path to success.
New this season: Coffee & Convos. GRCA is bringing them back! These events will join Lunch & Learns in supporting your small-business needs and will be held first thing in the morning.
