So You Want To Buy A Business…
This seminar will be a practical session designed to help entrepreneurs who have decided it’s finally time to own a business.  We will focus on concrete steps that you can take to ensure your entrepreneurial dream does not become a nightmare.  Specifically, we will help you to determine what to buy (stock or assets), how much to pay, and identify specific things about the business that you should investigate.
  • Elementary principles of investment analysis (risk, return, and why cash flow matters)
  • Why it’s important to evaluate the business as an investment (not as a job or a hobby)
  • Key questions that need to be asked and answered (by business owner and/or key employees)
  • Documents you should review (or have professionally reviewed) before agreeing on a price
  • Common deal structures (asset sales, stock sales) and how each could impact the deal price
  • Basic Due Diligence:  simple steps you can take to protect yourself from unscrupulous sellers.

Our quarterly acoustic Open Mic Nights are a great place for new performers to get comfortable on stage & to hear seasoned locals try out new material and collaborations. There’s such a fun, diverse collection of people that come out to these that it’s really inspiring to see so many great local musicians playing together in a cool environment. We’ve had everything from bands, solo acoustic acts, instrumental piano music, country, rock, folk, pop, blues…it’s a blast! And for the those not wanting to play but rather to listen, we recommend Open Mic Night as an easily affordable & mellow way to enjoy hearing from a diverse range of local musicians playing originals & covers.

Doors and Sign-Ups at 7:00 PM, Music at 7:30 PM Cost: $2 to play, $3 to attend and listen.
