Course offers advice to potential business owners

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Have a great business idea? A local organization wants to help make that dream come true, but the deadline to get the potentially free help is Friday. 

The Young Women's Christian Association and the Women's Business Center are offering help to the public.  

Friday, Jan. 22 is the last day to sign up for an eight-week course that will teach prospective business owners everything they need to know about starting up a business.

WBC and YWCA helped Cecilia Arosemena’s business get off the ground. A few years ago, Arosemena had to have surgery for a serious health issue. During her recovery process, Arosemena searched for other ways to heal herself, naturally. That is when she started juicing. Her business grew quickly and she went to WBC in search of help.
 
The organization helped her develop and grow her juicing business, Dish for Dosh. Dish for Dosh is now sold in three cafes. Arosemena has over 200 clients and is beginning the process of selling her juice in 70 stores across Arizona. She contributes her success to WBC and YWCA.

Registration closes at 5 p.m. Friday.   

There are still scholarship opportunities as well.
