February 27, 2012
Oceanside Public Library will offer two free workshops to help small business owners in March. Both will be held in the Foundation Room, 2nd floor, Civic Center Library, 330 North Coast Highway, downtown Oceanside. On Saturday, March 10, at 10:30 a.m., Doug Taber will instruct business owners how to use Linkedin, a free online networking tool, for business development. On Saturday, March 31, at 10:00 a.m., expert Maureen Thielen will provide an overview of QuickBooks, as well as hands-on training in use of this prevalent bookkeeping software.

These two programs are part of an ongoing series of workshops particularly relevant to entrepreneurs.
Both presenters have extensive experience assisting small business owners with their questions and research.
