Your local Illinois SBDC at Bradley University will hold a "Support Your Local SBDC Day" Open House (4:30pm to 7:00pm) for their clients, stakeholders, resource partners, friends, and the community as a whole to join in the conversation. Pop in, meet the team, mingle, enjoy the relaxing environment with hors d'oeuvres and refreshments, and have FUN! SBDC Day is a national, collective proclamation of the impact that America's Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) have on the success of our nation's dreamers, innovators and doers - America's small businesses.
Your “solopreneur” business has taken off, and you’ve achieved your dream of being your own boss. Congratulations!
But now, are you ready to be someone else’s boss? Most self-employed entrepreneurs reach a point when, even with the help of freelancers or outside contractors, they have more business than they can handle. At this stage,
the only way to keep growing—and growing more profitable—is to hire employees.
