Evansville, Ind. -- SCORE Evansville in conjunction with eighth district Congressman Larry Bucshon and WorkOne Southwest presents a seminar to address the most pressing questions entrepreneurs and business owners have today.

SCORE President Jack Buttrum says "SCORE Evansville is about helping small businesses, one business at a time. Our volunteers mentor, coach, advise and listen to anyone in the community who has a desire to go into business and is challenged with the business they already manage."

Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon states, "Hoosier businesses are facing a lot of uncertainties that are making it difficult to be successful," said Bucshon. "One of my top priorities in Congress is helping to create much needed jobs. Our business seminar will help equip local business owners with the necessary tools and information to be successful."

WorkOne Southwest Executive Director, Jim Heck, "Small businesses and entrepreneurs may not have the professional Human Resources staff of larger companies and it may be more difficult for those owners to access information regarding personnel matters. Seminars like these are important to provide information to keep those businesses thriving."
