Seminar — Women and Self-Employment: Tuesday, March 26, 2 to 3 p.m. at the Manhasset Library, 30 Onderdonk Ave. in Manhasset. Free event.
Operating a business from home offers women great flexibility to raise a family and add to the family coffers without the stress of an employed position marked by specific work hours and the demands of a boss whose objectives often run counter to those of women with children. The rise of female entrepreneurship since the recession more than a decade ago is well documented. Recent female college graduates are embracing the self-employed lifestyles in unprecedented numbers. Business ownership is a viable alternative for both the unemployed and underemployed. Business consultant Constance Hallinan Lagan helps women discover their passion and turn that passion into a profitable business. Topics covered include the “red tape” steps of starting a legitimate enterprise (registering the business, collecting sales tax, opening a business checking account, securing financing, purchasing insurance, and hiring employees versus independent contractor).
