    Congratulations to the Inaugrual At-Home Business 'U' Program Graduates


    Last fall, the Amherst Chamber of Commerce launched a new program, At Home Business 'U', aimed at providing home based business practitioners with the skills, knowledge and preparedness they would need to run at-home businesses. Participants in the program ranged from sole proprietors to sales executives whose home offices are based in other parts of the country and the regional "office" operates out of their spare bedroom.

    The number of small business owners who work from home is on the rise. More importantly, the Chamber's research has indicated that this specific demographic comes with a specific set of challenges. This is where At Home Business 'U' comes in.

    Participants in the series learned the skills necessary to grow their business at home through sessions taught by professionals from Daemen College, Roberts Wesleyan College & Northeastern Seminary and other industry experts. The Chamber's six-course certification program featured workshops on topics such as public speaking, customer service, battling isolation and building a better business plan.

    Now, armed with new knowledge and tools to grow their home based businesses into thriving companies, the Chamber's At Home Business 'U' participants will receive Certificates of Completion at the 2013 Small Business Awards Luncheon & Showcase.

    Please join the Chamber in celebrating the "graduation" of the inaugural class in the At Home Business 'U' program! Congratulations to:
