Toolkit.com Webinars Help Business Owners Find Time for Training

Free Monthly Online Seminars From the Business Owner's Toolkit

RIVERWOODS, IL--(Marketwire - October 15, 2007) - Webinars from the Business Owner's Toolkit can help business owners gain new skills without losing productivity.

With an emphasis on problem-solving, the Business Owner's Toolkit (www.toolkit.com) offers a series of free monthly Build Your Business (BYB) webinars to small business owners. BYB webinars provide business owners with the information they need to start, run and grow a successful business.

BYB webinars are online seminars. Attendees use both a computer and a telephone to participate. This allows them to view slides, interact with the trainer and submit questions that arise throughout the presentation.

Designed specifically for small businesses, BYB webinars help small business owners solve problems, meet challenges, and create valued products. Each webinar is delivered via the Internet and lead by a 'live' trainer using appropriate PowerPoint presentations, worksheets and toolsets, as well as access to the comprehensive knowledgebase provided by the Business Owner's Toolkit.

Webinars provide an ideal platform for business owners seeking the benefits of continuing education, according to Troy Janisch, publisher of the Business Owner's Toolkit.

"More than half of small business owners work between 8-12 hours a day. This means they have a difficult time leaving their businesses to participate in opportunities for continuing education," Janisch said. "Webinars offer other advantages to in-person training. Since BYB webinars aren't limited to local speakers, we can attract nationally recognized trainers and subject matter experts to participate."

Any business owner with Internet access and a telephone can participate in a BYB webinar. The following webinars are offered each month, at no cost, to members of the Business Owner's Toolkit: Building a Business Plan; Finding Money to Start a Business; Small Business Tax Workshop; Accounting Basics; and Choosing a Legal Structure.

BYB webinars are provided to business owners at no cost as one of the benefits of free Toolkit membership. The webinars are made possible by the support of Business Owner's Toolkit sponsors such as Advanta, BizFilings and Pitney Bowes.

Business owners can visit www.toolkit.com to view the course schedule, enroll in a free webinar and sign up for a free Business Owner's Toolkit membership.
