The Michigan Municipal League recently hosted a series of entrepreneurship trainings across the state featuring Dr. Ernesto Sirolli of the Sirolli Institute. The four trainings took place in Escanaba, Ludington, Bay City and Lansing and all were well attended by local officials, DDA directors, local chamber officials and others involved with small business development.
Dr. Sirolli presented on the importance of listening to those with dreams of owning their own business and understanding what it is they need to be successful. Of importance is knowing that running a business is a team sport and that no entrepreneur can do it all in order to make a business successful.
