Your hyperbole aside, your comparison is hardly apt. A zoning violation pales next to your felonious examples. But for the sake of argument, if you would comprehend my comment, you would see I did not question the validity of the law involved, only what it means to me. I prefer to choose my battles and this is one that does not apply to me. I do not know the parties invoved, their actions…

Since you continue to (falsely) claim that there won't be any revenue shortages, I'm going to continue to show that you're wrong.

Some financial professionals recommend folks have in savings either 6 months income or an amount equal to 6 months of debt. If this city was run the same way we'd have $15.9 million in reserves. Of course then the liberals would be screaming spend ... Spend .... SPEND!

2nd Annual GREDF Entrepreneurship Expo this Saturday

2nd Annual GREDF Entrepreneurship Expo this Saturday

8 months, 3 weeks ago by Scott Hardy

9:30 AM to 1:30 PM at Quincy Mall community room

The Quincy Entrepreneurship Center at GREDF, in collaboration with several Quincy area organizations, is hosting an informational event for current and aspiring entrepreneurs on Saturday, August 9th. The 2nd Annual Entrepreneurship Expo will take place in the Quincy Mall Community Room from 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. The Expo is free and open to the public.

"We wanted to provide a one-stop learning experience for entrepreneurs at any stage of the process," said Kimm Minnick, property manager for the Quincy Mall. "We worked with our partners to create an action-packed agenda that includes presentations and time for one-on-one interactions and specific questions."   

The day will begin with a Small Business Development Center presentation outlining the steps to starting a business - including the importance of a business plan and cash management.  

At noon the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce (QACC) will announce the winner of the 2014 Business Plan Competition.  

Lunch will be provided by the Quincy Mall immediately following the QACC announcement. Participants will have an opportunity to network and ask questions during this time. Stations will be set up for specific topics in the areas of financing a small business, marketing and sales, legal and tax issues, and human resources.  

According to Charles Bell, director of the Quincy Entrepreneurship Center, planning the event has been a group effort. "When we initiated the event last year we wanted to get a number of organizations involved so current and prospective small business owners would have access to a wide network of local resources in one place," Bell said. "It was so well received we decided to improve the event and hold it a second year."

The Entrepreneurial Expo is being coordinated by GREDF in collaboration with the Small Business Development Center, Quincy Mall, Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce, John Wood Community College, Quincy University, The District, Illinois WorkNet Center and the Quincy Business and Technology Center.  

In addition to the presentations and small group discussions, packets of information will be available outlining where to go for further assistance, as well as information about local training opportunities and schedules of upcoming entrepreneurship events.  

There is no cost to attend, and no RSVP is required. Questions may be directed to Charles Bell at GREDF - 217.223.4313 or charlesb@gredf.org, or any of the participating organizations.
