A special program is coming to the Lake Area aimed at helping small business owners.

According to the State Fair Community College, their SFCC Digital Media Communications program and the Missouri Small Business Development Center (MOSBDC) are partnering up to offer one-on-one consultations to small business owners by students, currently pursuing Skills Certificates or Associate of Applied Science degrees.

Officials say the purpose of this collaboration is so students can take the opportunity to use their knowledge and skills to help small business owners expand their market share and audience reach, as well as promote their products and services.

To participate, business owners will need to have an active website and an active presence on at least two social media platforms.

These free consultation sessions will be scheduled weekly after the spring semester begins, which is January 16th.
