Be Your Own Boss workshop can help turn military skills into business skills

Going civilian and thinking about starting your own business?

If so, attend Be Your Own Boss, a free, one-day workshop on entrepreneurship for transitioning members of the military, veterans and spouses.

Prince’s Charities Canada will be holding its first Be Your Own Boss daylong session in Brandon on Jan. 25. It is free for members of the military who have recently been released or who will soon be discharged to learn key business tools and to see if starting their own business is right for them.

In one day you can learn:

• How to transfer your military skills into business skills.

• How to write a business plan.

• How to access no-cost business resources for military members.

• More about key topics such as marketing, forms of business, sales and financials through breakout sessions with business students.

The event is at Brandon University, Room 212 Clarke Hall.

The Prince’s Operation Entrepreneur is a national program for transitioning Canadian Forces members interested in realizing their dreams of entrepreneurship.

This uniquely Canadian program offers the men and women who have served our country the education, financing and mentoring needed to start and sustain their own successful business.

This Prince’s Charities Canada program builds on the strengths of two key partners, the Canadian Youth Business Foundation and Enactus, and is supported by the Department of National Defence and Veterans Affairs Canada.
