The Small Business Devel­opment Center on Jan. 14 held a professional seminar at the Busi­ness Resource Center in down­town San Angelo.

“Tonight is our essentials to business startup class,” Dezaray Johnson, the program coordina­tor at the ASU Small Development Business Center, said.

Johnson said the class was for anyone interested in starting a business or someone who recently opened their doors.

“We talk about all the re­quirements they need to run their business so they are more pre­pared,” she said.

Before the seminar, every­one introduced themselves and talked about their goals.

Some of the topics covered included management, marketing and information technology.

“My advice is to be a knowl­edge-seeker,” Johnson said. “A lot of people understand what they want to do and what their passion is, but need help with the management part of things. That’s where our cen­ter comes into play.”

Johnson said she hopes stu­dents get the chance to follow their dreams and encourages anyone who wants to become a business owner to come and ask questions to reach their potential.

The SBDC will host their next training event Feb. 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
