This could be interesting and helpful: The Cornell Cooperative Extension Saratoga County has a workshop for food entrepreneurs -- "Recipe for Success" -- lined up for March 23. Blurbage:

If you're thinking of making and selling a favorite recipe, or even if you already have a small food business, the presenters of this program can give you guidance. Their experience and expertise in licensing a food product, processing, packaging, marketing, pricing, and selling are an invaluable resource. The program also includes the basics of successful small business management. Current or potential food entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend.

That first link above includes a schedule of the speakers and talk topics during the day.

The workshop is Thursday, March 23 from 9 am to 5 pm at the extension office in Ballston Spa. The fee is $65 / two for $95. And the registration deadline is March 17.

Looking for other small business how-to workshops? The Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region and the Capital Region Chamber regularly offer courses.

I went to one last month. My friend took his oath of citizenship. It is a great ceremony. A local school choir sang. There was a moving speech from one of the new citizens who grew up a refugee and at the age of 21 was finally a citizen of a country for the first time in her life. The League of Women Voters give warm welcomes, flags and voter registration cards to all the new citizens. It gave me such warm fuzzies. Everyone should try to go to one of these if they get the chance.
