The Greater Phoenix SCORE offers workshops to help small business owners operate more efficiently and effectively, even in a down economy. Upcoming workshops include:

  • The Buzz About Your Business, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, April 6 at the Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Ave. This free seminar is designed for those who want the inside scoop about what is going on in today’s marketplace when you are looking to start a new business. How do you compete? The workshop will be in the Fourth Floor Lecture Room.
  • Paper vs. Plastic, 3-5 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, NMBA/SSC Boring Building, 1951 W. North Lane. Most all merchants take plastic for payment, but many have no idea how that really works, so they overpay for it. This seminar details how the system works to enable a merchant to ask informed questions to separate real answers from the bogus answers. Bringing processing statements is encouraged. Find out the true costs of accepting payment by credit cards. Cost for this workshop is $25, or $20 for NMBA members.
