Female entrepreneur course accepting applications
Be the Change Foundation offers a 12-class program for female entrepreneurs, starting in February.
The Be the Change Foundation, a nonprofit organization with a mission of empowering, strengthening and inspiring women, will start its next course in February.
It offers a series of 12 classes for women who want to start a business or build an existing venture. Local professionals teach the classes at Lord Fairfax Community College near Warrenton. Each session starts with an entrepreneur who shares his or her story and shares business tips.
The classes cover such topics as exploring the “why” of business ownership, building a plan, organizing the chaos, understanding profit and loss, the benefits of having an accountant, legal aspects and managing your risk, marketing, social media, networking skills, when to hire additional staff and managing stress.
Tuition is $250 for the 12-week series, with partial tuition assistance available.
Eight women recently completed the fall classes.

The spring session starts Feb. 16. Open to residents of Fauquier and surrounding counites, the classes meet 6 to 8 p.m.
