Coconino County Community Services: Recruiting for Basic Business Empowerment Program

| December 26, 2016

Coconino County Community Services is partnering with the Coconino Small Business Development Center to offer the Basic Business Empowerment (BBE) program. This 12-week / 36 hour business plan development training will be facilitated 6:00 – 9:00pm, Tuesday evenings, January 10th through March 28th, at the County Health and Community Services building, 2625 N. King St., Flagstaff, 86004.  Those meeting lower-income and asset eligibility requirements may also qualify for business or post-secondary education grants available to match participants’ saved earned income.

Research shows that once out of crisis, to move beyond poverty requires asset-building and one of the best asset-building strategies, especially for those with disabilities or who are ex-offenders, is to start or expand a micro- or small business.  Unfortunately, although studies also show that about 70 percent of the general population has considered starting a business, most have not because they are not sure how to start. Interestingly, two-thirds of the 10 percent who do start a business were kids of business owners.  They typically know much of what BBE presents don’t have the fear that hold others back.
