I support legalization but this is a step in the right direction. Pot should be treated no different than alcohol. We waste too many resources and tax money chasing down pot heads.

Congress is a corrupt worthless organization. The GOP is filled with cowards who are afraid to confront Obama's lawlessness and the democrats are a bunch of regressive liberal socialists who go along with Obama's socialist agenda to the detriment of America and freedom. As has been said many times, "Politicians are like diapers. They both should be changed often and for the same reason."

Students wonder why they have to take history classes. It's so we can remember what our forebears did to make our lives what they are. Thank you to all who served for our freedom.

2nd annual entrepreneurial expo at Quincy Mall

10 months ago from GREDF

Event will be held Saturday, August 9th from 9:30am to 1:30pm in the Community Room

Several Quincy area organizations are coming together to host an informational event for current and aspiring entrepreneurs on Saturday, August 9th. The event will take place in the Quincy Mall Community Room beginning at 9:30am. The event 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 are working with our partners to create an action-packed agenda that includes presentations and time for 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.
