So often in conversations, I hear people say "I wish I could just quit my job and go into business for myself." "What's stopping you?" I usually ask. Turns out, like many others, it's that they don't know where to start. If this sounds like you, we are here to help.
If you've been thinking of starting a new business or growing your budding business, you will benefit from a series of Business Education Series Training (BEST) classes presented by the Jeffco Business Resource Center.
Attend one or all three classes. Registration is suggested by calling 303-235-5275.
Books. Everyone knows the library has them. Have you gone outside your comfort zone and tried all the other resources the library has to offer? We invite you to get Outside the Lines with us next week and try something new. We'll share how each day next week on Facebook and Twitter.
Outside the Lines is a weeklong celebration, Sept. 14-20, demonstrating the creativity and innovation happening in libraries. Libraries across the country will be engaging with their communities in new and unexpected ways. Stay tuned for how you can participate.
The process of looking for a job, getting your resume together, and interviewing can be overwhelming. If you are not sure where to begin, consider attending one of our job readiness classes presented by the American Job Center. Experts will take you through the steps that you are struggling with.
Recently, I've watched as my grandparents' health has deteriorated and they have moved from their home of more than 40 years into a retirement community. The transition was hard for everyone – my grandparents, their children, and me. I'm now watching as the same thing is happening to my aunt and we struggle to do what is best for her – and for us.
As much as my family thought we had planned ahead and started conversations with our seniors early in the process, these transitions still happened after several crises had occurred – too late. What we learned is that you can never plan too far in advance and it's best to educate yourself and your seniors before a crisis occurs that forces a decision upon all of you.
Those of you caring for aging parents, or any senior adult, will benefit greatly from a workshop we are offering with "The Senior Expert" Karen Owen-Lee. She will cover legal and financial issues, crisis warning signs, making a family plan, and having the difficult, but necessary, conversations with your loved ones. The workshops will take place at several locations over the next month.
The start of the school year can only mean one thing: homework. If you're looking for some extra help, Jefferson County Public Library has all the resources you need for kids and teens. Online homework help, access to free research sites, tutors, expert staff, and more. We're your one stop homework help shop.
School is about to start, and that means kids will be back in math class. In a time when understanding math is paramount to lifelong success, many children have negative attitudes about math and even suffer from math anxiety. Join the CEO/Founder of Teacher's Professional Resource, Debra Hansen, to learn what steps you can take to create a positive math environment for your kids, and how positive math experiences at home will lead to increased math confidence and success in school. Learn how to talk with your kids about math, curb YOUR anxiety about math, help with homework, play games, and make math fun for the whole family.
Thinking of acting as your own attorney? Sure, it could save you tons of money, but it could also be more than you bargained for. Let us help. We'll be offering a free clinic to give you the assistance you might be looking for.
Volunteer lawyers will be available at the Belmar Library via video link to answer questions, help fill out forms, and explain the process and procedures for all areas of civil litigation.
This clinic is for informational purposes only and should not be considered a form of legal representation. You have the right to retain an attorney of your choice at any time, and are advised to do so.
