Deb Beddoe to be Guest Speaker at Inventing Profit Meeting September 12th.
Our next Inventing Profit meeting is just around the corner. The theme for this month is “How to “Start-up” Your Business” with Deb Beddoe of Your Ops Manager, Carlsbad. She will walk you through some of the things you should consider before starting your business. Please join us Wednesday, September 12th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce.
Running a small business or start up in today’s competitive environment is a challenge for any entrepreneur or inventor. Having a dream,an idea, or a product, is just the first step in the process of bringing it to the marketplace and making it a reality. Along the way there are hurdles, obstacles, laws and regulations that must be addressed, adhered to and managed before you can even begin to realize that dream.
Your Ops Manager is a system of services that assist small businesses by implementing a “do it for you” system that will complete the business operations tasks that most business owners want to avoid including human resources, accounting, payroll, compliance, events, benefits and strategic management.
Deb is on the board of directors of the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce and is actively involved with many other business associations. Your Ops Manager is recognized as Small Business of the Year for 2012 by the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce.
