After the class, participants will need to start on their paperwork; however, they are not expected to complete all of the paperwork on their own. A business counselor will guide participants through the process and answer questions as necessary. Personal business counseling services are free and no limit is placed on the number of appointments. Business counselors routinely tackle problems such as business financing for start-ups, expansions, acquisitions, business management issues, tax and record-keeping issues, etc.

The class will meet in the Van Wert City Council Conference Room, on the second floor of the Municipal Building, 515 E. Main St., from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, August 25; however, dates and times do change, so contact the Ohio State University Extension-Van Wert County Community Development Office at 419.238.2999 to register and confirm dates and times.
