Strategies for success in today’s economy will be one of the featured topics at a free business resource seminar and expo at the Ventura College Wright Event Center on Wednesday, November 9. The seminar will highlight a variety of approaches and techniques that can help local businesses position themselves for success, capitalize on billions of dollars in tax credits, and minimize the frustration of taxation.
