Small Business Teleseminar - Researcher says "Most Small Business Information is Simply Wrong"

Detroit, MI (PressExposure) August 26, 2009 -- Edward King, Director of Small Business Services at Wayne State University, will be doing a no cost 90-minute teleseminar on Thursday August 27th at 7:30 PM EST. He will discuss the specific problems of getting a business off the ground and the problems in running a business. “Most information circulated contains myths,” said Mr. King. Some the myths include:

• Everyone should be in business. Truth: Only 25% of the population has the necessary skills to be successful. • Individuals should get into the business that will be "hot" over the next year. Truth: You must consider starting only those businesses that comply with your own unique interests and abilities. • Running is a business very complicated. Truth: It is simple if you know the steps. • You should price your product or service based upon what your competition is charging. Truth: There is a very simple formula to calculate what you charge. • You built it and they will come: Truth: You must come up with a very specific marketing plan. • If you are running a business, you will pay a lot in income taxes.

Truth: There are two sets of taxes... one for the employee and one for the business owner. As a business owner you are able to write off a lot of things that you couldn't if you worked for somebody else.

Did you know that 89% of annual incomes over $50,000 are earned by owners of small businesses? Do you know why four out of five small businesses fail within five years? Knowledge is the difference between success and failure.

The teleseminar will cover the following topics:

* How to slash hundreds off your taxes, * Why 90% of business opportunities are a “rip off,” * The 20 biggest “pitfalls” in starting and running a small business, * How to price your product or service, * The secrets of making money on eBay, * How to get 75% of your new customers from the Internet, and * How to start with very little cash. * How to double your profits in 90 days using a simple free tool.
