Gary Buterbaugh, Owner and Executive Producer at High Impact Event Resources, developed the show for three reasons: “First, I became aware of the huge number of individuals turning to home-based businesses as an alternative to employment, as a supplement to under employment or to supplement inadequate retirement funding. Now with so many veterans leaving military services, self-employment has become their only option for a variety of reasons.
"Secondly, during my involvement with the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), it soon became obvious that home-based entrepreneurs are constantly in search of useful information, sound advice, expert assistance and moral support,” said Buterbaugh. “And lastly, I appreciate the help I received from the SBDC and want to be sure they can continue to help others.”
“To meet the needs home-based business owners, the event offers a strong educational component specifically addressing issues they face every day. Our unique seminar series, Biz@Home University, is a series of 12 non-commercial sessions developed with the aid of the SBDC and The City of Santa Clarita Economic Development Department, all presented by experts. The second track, Biz@Home Showcase, presents sessions for those interested in learning more about the business opportunities, products and services available to home-based entrepreneurs.”
Sponsoring the event are KHTS AM1220, The Santa Clarita Signal/SCVBusiness Journal, City of Santa Clarita, BusinessOpportunity.com, Via Promotionals, the SCV Chamber of Commerce, and Community Partner, HotSpot SCV.
