The Fremont Group is a non-profit organization with the mission to support small business owners. Persons who are familiar with SCORE, an agency established by the SBA to do much the same, is therefore familiar with us—with one difference. The Fremont Group can stay with you and provide much more intensive assistance than SCORE. To meet us, try a customize webinar. Contact us and together we will pick an issue. The issue could range from sales and marketing, to operations, to employee productivity, to cash flow forecasting, to creating and using your budget. Then we will develop a webinar customized for you to address this issue. Like what you hear and we can come in for a day and do a Business Assessment creating an Action Plan to take you to your next level. Best of all—the webinar is free! We want to help you—let us! Give us a call at 303 338 9300 today to talk about it—talk is cheap!

The winter webinar series concludes on Monday, February 27th with the winter “Minding My Own Business Workshop” and Business Roundtable. Registration for this event went fast—it was filled back in January! If you missed it—look for next summer’s event. The all-day event hosted by The Fremont Group includes the 2 1/2 hour workshop covering the six responsibilities of the small business owners tracing the book, “Minding My Own Business” authored by Dirk Dieters our Executive Director. Following lunch is the roundtable. Always one of the most popular events, the Fremont Business Roundtable solicits issues from the participants and puts them up for open discussions between the participants and the Fremont Success Partners. It is always amazing the ideas that come from these discussions. Due to our budget constraints, we have to limit the participants to 12. We are looking for ways to expand the number of owners who can take part this summer. If you have interest, send us an email and get on our pre-registration list for summer!
