May is small business month and small businesses are a major economic generator in Detroit and beyond. However, aspiring and current entrepreneurs grapple with how to build, grow and sustain their business. With this in mind, The LEE Group will hold its annual 2017 Small Business Workshop on Wednesday, May 3, 2017. This year’s theme is focused on Business Sustainability. The workshop’s mission is to provide practical advice and counsel to aspiring and existing small businesses experiencing start-up and grown challenges. Onsite resources will be available to assist attendees in overcoming day-to-day business challenges.
