Social Media Basics-Win $10k-Feedback


The work / life balance for an entrepreneur and small business owner is a constant struggle and often a big point of stress. However, if you are not investing in the health and well being of yourself and your family, you are putting all that you work for at risk. It is important to remember that you are your business’s most important asset, so make sure to treat yourself as such. Vacation, relaxation, rest, sleep are not forbidden words for an entrepreneur and can actually be your competitive advantage if you do it right. Take the time to unplug, unwind, and look around you…. who knows, you might even find your next big idea in the process.
Below, we have curated informative upcoming events from around the Greater Newark area that we hope you will find useful and fun. One of which is our Social Media Basics for Business event on Tuesday July 19th RSVP now.
