April is Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Month

The Springfield chapter of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and AARP are hosting a workshop called "Simple Steps for Starting a Small Business for Ages 50+" on Wednesday, April 3, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Library Center in Meeting Room B.

The event is part of Encore Entrepreneur Month. SBA and AARP will work to match "encore entrepreneurs" with successful business owners and community leaders for advice and assistance.

According to SBA and AARP, entrepreneurship training is the toolkit that empowers people over the age of 50 to use their experience, knowledge and skills to become job creators. ln addition, entrepreneurship training focuses on helping experienced professionals leverage their career knowledge for a new business.

Mentor Month is an opportunity for SBA and its partners to leverage AARP's network to introduce existing and future encore entrepreneurs to existing resources. lt is also an opportunity for AARP to expose interested members to SBA's resources available to help them in starting and growing a business.
