Seminars aim to equip small business owners with resources to succeed

In an effort to equip small companies with a range of techniques to optimize their business, the Strategic Legal Group law firm is hosting seminars on “Essential Information Every Business Owner Should Know” in collaboration with several local businesses including Hillberg & Company, G.D.I. Insurance and the Small Business Development Center.

“We’re primarily a business law firm and one thing we have noticed is that many small businesses don’t have a lot of resources, especially regarding the fact that some laws are no so favorable to them,” said Managing Attorney Sergio Jimenez of Strategic Legal Group. “A lot of companies don’t have risk mitigation strategies whether that is in HR or insurance, for example.”

Witnessing the trend prompted the Group to partner with the local businesses to host the
risk based seminars to educate local business owners on some basic ways they can not only protect themselves, but do business better. Hillberg & Company will address new laws and was to improve a company’s bottom line while G.D.I. Insurance will present on wellness plans and smart ways companies can save money. Lastly, the Small Business Development Center will familiarize the attendees with resources available to them in the region.

 “We believe that businesses are the life blood of the community and our goal is to keep that going,” said Jimenez.

The first workshop will begin with a half hour of networking at 5:30 p.m. followed by presentations from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. The second seminar will commence at 10 a.m. Jan. 31 with a half hour of networking followed by presentations until  noon.  Both events will take place at 121 West Main St., Suite F.
