Today’s blog information comes from the awesome organization called Small Business BC. 
It’s October first: while for some that may mean the turning of the leaves and the appearance of pumpkins at the grocery store, it is also great reason for small business owners to celebrate. Last night at the iconic Science World (Telus World of Science) building, SMBC kicked off its Small Business Month with a panel, titled INSPIREbc, which featured five of the province’s most distinguished small business owners.
Small Business Month is a series of free seminars held in Vancouver, quite a few of which will be broadcast via web to business owners around the province and the country. We would strongly encourage our readers and clients, whether locally or in in any part of the country, to tune in and learn from any one of the seminars on offer: a full list of the available topics with their date, location and time is available at the SMBC website.
