Knowing Yourself
Are You Ready?

“The roads are paved with flat squirrels that could not make a decision.”

Being a business owner takes certain abilities. Understanding your personal strengths and weaknesses (yes, we all have them) is imperative to being successful in business. Learning how to identify those talents and qualities we possess, and those we need a little help with, will pay off in the long run.

The resources and support you can receive from the Pasco Enterprise Network will help you become the best business owner possible.

The SMARTstart CO.STARTERS  program, made available in the Tampa Bay area by the Pasco Economic Development Council, includes an easy self-assessment during the first week of the nine-week program .  This assessment helps the business owner understand what is needed to run an organization and where they fit in. 

No one said being a business owner would be easy, but we’re here to help guide you along the path. As you grow your business, we have the tools and resources you need to succeed. 

Pasco EDC has partnered with SCORE and the Chambers of Commerce throughout Pasco County to bring CO.STARTERS to locations throughout the county.
