A new year ... the perfect time to recharge, reassess and plan the next move for your business. And, lucky you, we've assembled events, courses, strategies and more in this newsletter to push you forward.

So, you might've heard about a suite of low- and no-cost classes for entrepreneurs. Well, if you've graduated from the program (called the Urban Business Growth Initiative), you're now eligible to enter a contest with a top prize of at least $5,000.

Now, if you haven't taken one of these classes, fear not. We've outlined five upcoming courses you can apply for in the link and take in the next few months that'll automatically make you eligible to enter the contest.

More details here in the link. Told you that you'd wanna click it.
