New business classes at Douglas County Libraries

Moms, if you own a small business or work from home, pay attention. Douglas County Libraries is offering two new classes for small business people.

In “How to Find and Target a Profitable Niche for your Services,” Jeanna Pool of Catalyst Creative will help you ensure that the niche you're targeting is the best one for you, your services and your personality.

This class, to be held at Parker Library on Monday, August 23 at 7 p.m., is great for those just starting businesses and those who have been in business for years, but are ready to increase their incomes through the power of niche marketing.

In “Personal Strategic Planning: Doing What You Do Best,” Meredith Masse of MPower Consulting will help business owners optimize their strengths while meeting all the needs of their businesses.

“Most people probably didn't go into business for themselves to do bookkeeping, marketing, sales, or tech support, unless they happen to be in the accounting, marketing, or IT business,” said Masse. “But every business owner has to wear each of these hats at some point.”

The strategic planning class at Philip S. Miller Library in Castle Rock on Monday, August 30 at 6:30 p.m. can help business owners reconnect with what they love to do. It can also give them a plan for doing all that their business requires; even the parts they’re not passionate about.

Both classes are free but require registration. For more information or to register, call 303-791-7323 or visit
