Small Biz in the Big Apple – Intuit Money Matters Town Hall Series

. Posted in small Business questions

<

Drew Raphael always knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur. Yet, he never imagined that after his corporate marketing job was downsized that his entrepreneurial spirit would lead him to start Dead Apple Tours. It-s a unique Big Apple experience that guides tourists (in a hearse, of course) around New York City to visit the locations where the famous have passed away. Raphael admits that some of his biggest concerns are remaining competitive in a tough tourism market and taking risks in order to grow his business.

Alexis Wolfer, another New York City business owner, is founder and editor-in-chief of The Beauty Bean. Launched this year, The Beauty Bean is a free, online magazine and weekly e-mail newsletter geared toward women that focuses on inner-beauty and health. Part of running her own business means she has to remain focused on attracting customers and marketing to expand her reach.

Raphael and Wolfer are just two of the many New York based businesses that will share their small business stories as part of the Intuit Money Matters Town Hall Series on Wed., April 28. The small business session, led by small business advocate Rhonda Abrams and Cameron Schmidt, vice president of Intuit-s employee management solutions division, will include discussion topics on hiring, growing a business in a recession and surviving and thriving in a -recovery- economy.

Here-s how you can learn more:

    Pull up a chair and a computer and watch the free, live, small business webcast from 9:30 - 10:45 a. m. Eastern daylight time (a replay will be made available). You-ll have the opportunity to hear about the challenges, opportunities and successes facing small business owners. Plus, you-ll get a chance to ask questions via a live Twitter stream. Follow us on Twitter, @IntuitTownHall, now through the event. Check back here for more blog posts with small business owners, moderators and an event re-cap.

We hope you-ll tune in for a lively discussion geared toward helping small businesses save and make money.
