Sessions meet once per month from 8:30-11:30 a.m., beginning Feb. 26 through Dec. 10. The cost of each session is $35.

According to LBMC partner Jim Callihan, “In this tough economic environment, it’s more important than ever that entrepreneurs are equipped with an understanding of cash flow management and other key business skills, which is why LBMC is happy to partner with TSBDC in delivering the SMLS series.”
