Running a Garden Communicating Business 2018
Thursday, August 16 | 8:30AM - 9:30AM
This is an entry-level presentation that starts by defining a chart of accounts, developing a budget, running the maze of tax consequences, and driving funds to below the bottom line as profit. It will offer tips on how and when to say, "NO!" It will attempt to monetize the words and images that make a garden communicator’s life possible. Finally, this presentation will recognize the nurturing network that exists within GWA to offer guidance, friendship and financial advice.
