"Statistics show there is a lot of small business activity in ND."
Many people of all ages are looking to take advantage of our good economy.
AARP hosted Encore Entrepreneurs--a free seminar to help people over the age of 50 start a business of their own.
"How to start a small business.  Giving people information on the best resources and places to go for information on how to make a success on something they have dreamed of doing." says Janis Cheney
This series of classes gives people an idea what to expect when running their own organization.
"Opening a business is a lot of work." says Carol Kroll, Prospective Small Business Owner
Carol wants to get into the online retail world selling wedding supplies.
She came to this class hoping to get some ideas on how make her dream a reality--from folks who have the wisdom and know how on how to be an entrepreneur
"I think there is a lot more life stories and a lot more experience from people that are in my age range."

"You learn something from everybody, no matter what age."
