New! Encore Programs: Entrepreneurship for Business Owners 50yrs+

The Encore Programs are created especially for those seeking a second or lifestyle career at age 50+. Instead of leaving work behind, many are finding that starting a business or scaling their existing business provides an exciting new chapter to their lives. Encore Programs meet bi-weekly on Thursdays and alternates between free discussion sessions ("What's Your Next") and kick-starter sessions that provide a hands-on approach to addressing pertinent business ownership issues ("Encore Career Toolbox").


Encore Series: Encore Career Toolbox (hands-on approach):

Being a business owner when you are 50+ can seem a bit overwhelming in our ever changing business environment. From understanding how to improve your networking skills, to highlighting the value proposition of your product/service in 2018, to generating referrals through social media, to establishing yourself on LinkedIn, the Encore Career Toolbox provides a hands-on approach to make your transition a smooth one.
