Louisville out to better itself this month

August 5, 2013 by  

Louisville has three events coming up designed, in their own ways, to help people move on to increased independence and better things.

College students who want to become involved in their school should think about attending the CMI Rush event, which takes place later this week at the Galt House East Grand Ballroom, 140 North Fourth Street in Louisville.

There will be live music, guest speakers, and free refreshments as of 2:00 pm on Thursday, August 8, 2013

Entrepreneurs, on the other hand, might consider going along to the seminar on owning your own business, which will be held at 5:45 pm on Wednesday, August 14, at Wesleyan University, 1500 Alliant Avenue, Room 203 in Louisville.

This event will teach participants the traits of an entrepreneur, accounting and marketing basics, insurance and legal considerations, how to create a business plan, and how to integrate money management skills. The workshop costs $49 per person to attend and spouses are free.

Also occurring on the same day at 6:00 pm is the chance to speak with Jay Baer, a New York Times best-selling author at the Pointe, 1205 East Washington Street in Louisville.

He will bring talk about his current book “Youtility: why smart marketing is about help, not hype”, which debuted at #3 among books of its type.

The book covers advertising, digital marketing, social media, public relations, and community relations. The first 100 guests will receive a free copy of the book. Admission is also free, and a cash bar and appetizers will be offered.

Whether writing a book or starting a business, local printing companies can offer expert advice on getting started.
