Look for my seminars at Small Business Centers located at NC Community Colleges across the state. If you don’t see one of my seminars offered, ask your local SBC to host me.

Renfrow Hardware, Matthews, NC

Reynolds Homestead, Critz, VA

As I build this page, see the “My Current Classes” page for the schedule. I’m working on 2016 right now. If you’d like to take one of my classes, contact me or the venue where I’m teaching. If you’d like me to teach at your location, let’s talk!
