The Kansas Small Business Development Center at Cowley College is offering two free workshops for business owners and potential business owners, both on March 26 at the Pratt Public Library, 401 S. Jackson.

Scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon is QuickStart Business Planning: Using a simple narrative template and a simple cash flow template, participants will learn how to develop the key elements of a business plan. The plan developed with these templates can be used as a basis for a final business plan.

Launch a Home-Based Business begins at 1 p.m. and is scheduled to end at 3. This workshop will cover basics that everyone starting a home business needs to know.

There is no charge for either workshop, but participants are asked to register by calling 620-441-6253 or 316-978-3193, by fax to 620-978-3647, email or online at
