Home Based Business is Big Business:

On October 22, 2008, sixty-five current and potential home-based business owners and economic development practitioners attended CF Westman's Home Based Business Conferece. A panel of four business professionals provided information and answers to various questions on the topics of networking, marketing, retailing, and managing family and work in the home. Al Vickers discussed what every home based business owner should know about taxes. A financial panel discussed financial aspects of starting and running a home based business and Derek Cullens discussed legal considerations. The conference was a huge success!
