4/28 MCNW Seminar - Start-Up Brown Bag


Start a small retail business during the worst economic downturn in a generation? Do it without any paid advertising? And compete with some of the biggest retail chains in Oregon?

First time small business owner Michael Hanna says YES to all of these questions. Michael and his wife opened a mattress and bedding store on January 2nd in NE Portland. So far the results have been terrific! At this brown bag lunch Michael will share his start-up story and he'll facilitate a small business 'idea-sharing' session. Michael's previous careers include: TV News Reporter (KATU), TV Ad Sales Person and Media Sales Manager.
