Kean University Offers Workshop on Managing
Responsibilities As an Entrepreneur

UNION, N.J. ––– The Small Business Development Center of Kean University will offer a free workshop, titled Transitioning from Employee to Employer, on Wednesday, July 13, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the PNC Community Education Center, located at 209 West Second Street in Plainfield, N.J.

This seminar, conducted by Jeffrey Dunn, founder of the Business Incubator and Amalgamated Business Consultants in Plainfield, N.J., will discuss balancing the freedoms and responsibilities of self-employment. Dunn provides a unique perspective on entrepreneurship not as a job, but as a lifestyle filled with challenges, independence and adventure. Guests will have the opportunity to view this adventure/mystery from the comforts of the workshop.

This workshop is one of six offered as part of the Free Summer Small Business Series. Held from July 13 through August 17 at the education center, the series features weekly seminars for aspiring business owners on a wide range of business topics. Those participants who attend at least four of the workshops will receive a certificate recognizing their achievements.

Co-sponsors of the series include SCORE®, The Incubator One-Stop Service in Plainfield, N.J.; City of Plainfield, N.J.; Plainfield, N.J., Chamber of Commerce; UCEDC; the U.S. Small Business Administration; N.J. Commerce and Economic Growth Tourism Commission; and the Union County Workforce Investment Board.
