EPIC Series: Self-Care for the Self-Employed

FMS Bank and the East Colorado SBDC are proud to present the Monthly E.P.I.C. Series (Entrepreneurs, Professionals, & Investors Community). Each month we bring together members of the business community and a new topic to help you learn new skills or further develop your existing skillset!

Entrepreneurs tend to be very busy people – and the busier we are, the more we neglect our own self-care. Many of us know that caring for ourselves is important – but how do we, as business owners, find the time? What does it even look like, anyway? And how do we even know what we really need? 

Self-care encompasses so much more than hot tea and quiet time.

Join us for real talk about real business and the many different shapes self-care can take for the self-employed.

Erie: Marketing Your Brand

Strengthen your brand with your marketing strategy.

Building a brand is a challenge for anyone who has started a company or is working to grow it.

Business branding is often a much bigger process, meaning long hours and massive budgets to successfully grow your business. Not every new brand is able to rely on a massive marketing budget.

This seminar will show you how to work to build your brand effectively, especially when resources are scarce. We will show you how to communicate your brand, how to drive the brand to your target audience and how to give your brand a lasting identity.
