How To Start a Business In 10 EZ Steps 


Irvine Heritage Park Branch,  Orange County Public Library, 14361 Yale Avenue, Irvine, CA 

Jumpstart your dreams with this practical, down to earth workshop on starting a business! Follow the 10 EZ Steps to test your market, create a strategy, set operating parameters, explore financing options and start your business plan. The workshop also covers the legal and administrative steps to start-up -- taxes, licenses and regulations - as well as the order in which to do them! 

Bonnie Copeland of SCORE presents this workshop. Bonnie started her own retail ski shop at the age of nineteen, built it in five years to $1 million in sales, and then sold it in favor of a career as a stay-at-home mom. Within a year she had started a new home-based business selling custom portraits of children and pets through mail order and specialty shops. Five years later Bonnie sold this business, then earned her MBA and moved to Southern California to work as Project Financial Analyst for Hughes Aircraft and Project Manager for Shell Oil. Later, as a Financial Manager for the Disney Corporation, she worked on the construction of Thunder Mountain Railroad and managed financial affairs for Disney University and all of the Disney-owned stores at the park and hotels.
