Happy Veterans Day to all who have and continue to serve our country.  It's also the first day of AARP's Small Business Roundtable where we will ask and answer your questions about starting, marketing, funding and growing your business.  Last week we introduced our guest panel who will be available for the next two weeks to engage you on all things small business. 

 

So, I invite you to join the conversation.  We'd like to hear from you!

 

I also invite you to join us next week Nov. 20 @ 7PM EST to learn about how to Start a Business Online.  You can register now at https://vekeo.com/event/aarpfinancialresiliance-46983/ (copy and paste in your browser).

 

To kick off our conversation, let's start with @KeithH119895 to give us some basic information about starting a business.
