Small Business Development Center is highlighting three free videos in July

LEWISTON, Idaho – The North Central Idaho Small Business Development Center at Lewis-Clark State College is highlighting three free videos that focus on business startups, content marketing and human resources for the remainder of July.

The NCISBDC provides no-cost business consulting, financial and marketing analysis, startup support, strategy and plan development assistance, and data and practical information for entrepreneurs and small business owners in north central Idaho.

The three videos are a part of the center’s Accelerating Business Success Video Webinar courses. Registration is required, but all of the videos are free.

The three highlights for this month include 17 Steps to Startup, which is taught by Felena Hanson. In 2011, Hanson started Hera Hub, a work and meeting place where enterprising women could connect and collaborate in a spa-inspired setting. She has since wrote a book that provides a step-by-step process to help a new business get off the ground.

The second video is Marketing Basics Part III and focuses on content marketing basics. Corissa Saint Laurent, an instructor at Portland State University and a professional speaker in business marketing and development, will discuss how to help a business grow and transform through various marketing concepts.

The final featured video is on Human Resources and is led by Barbara Leachman, director of the NCISBDC, and Tommy Cano, the founder and president of the Cano HR Group. The two will discuss different ways to manage employees.
