As a small business owner, you may be thinking about taxes with a significant level of uncertainty, especially with new tax laws in effect.

This workshop is a realistic starting point for small businesses wanting to strengthen their understanding over their business taxes.

Depending on the pace of the workshop, end time may vary.

Did you know that by the age of age 7, many of the habits that will help kids manage their money are already set?
Did you know that by the age of 3, many children are able to grasp economic ideas such as value and exchange?
Did you know that as parents we are more and more comfortable telling it like it is to kids about important topics...except when it comes to money?
Imagine a place to learn how to navigate through those important discussions and to share that experience with other parents as well all while having a cup of coffee while the kids are being looked after? Money, Mommy & Me is looking to build a community of parents striving for a financially stable environment for their families to THRIVE!

Don't miss this event that will provide you an opportunity to build your referral base over a speed networking session! Space is limited! Please register soon to reserve your spot. Tips for maximizing the speed networking session: Be prepared to introduce yourself and your business, bring business cards and a name tag if you have one. You will have 2 minutes to convey your business and then listen for 2 minutes. What better way to meet so many in such a short period of time and then determine who you would like to meet again?

There will probably be a virtual event going on at the same time, so keep an eye out for that. 

The fun happens 3:30 to 6:00 PM, Open Networking from 6-7:30 pm December 10, 2020

Some beer and wine will be available. 

Due to the popularity of this event we are having to limit registration to one person per business. 

You must pre-register for this event and no walk-ins allowed.
