BB&T sponsors free business seminar at Tamarack for young business owners

BECKLEY (WOAY)- If you’re a small business owner just starting out and looking to learn about running a company, you may have made your way to the Tamarack Wednesday for a business seminar.

The free seminar was sponsored by BB & T banking. Young business owners and entrepreneurs learned about balance sheets, cash flow statements and the importance of maintaining financial records. Business owners tell us it was a very valuable course.

“I think anyone who’s starting a small business this is very help for them,” said Jenny Pence of Fayetteville. “Because they will quickly see that over the course of just 12 months, they’ll see what there costs will be what their time will be and that’s something we wish we knew when we first started out.”

The seminar was four ours and there was even a free lunch at the Tamarack.
