            What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur? It won’t cost a thing to find out with Moraine Park Technical College’s free entrepreneurship workshops April 23 at the Fond du Lac campus, April 30 in West Bend and May 14 in Beaver Dam.

            Here’s what you will learn by attending: An overview and state of entrepreneurship, what it takes to be successful, where ideas come from, the anatomy of a business plan, the nuts and bolts of starting a business, types of business entities, regulations and requirements and the resources available.                                        

            Facilitating the workshops will be Moraine Park’s Entrepreneurial Associate Jeremy Joecks. Joecks received his master’s in business and marketing postsecondary and secondary education from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and his bachelor’s in business management-entrepreneurship from UW-Eau Claire. Most recently, Joecks worked in higher education administration as an area director for Kaplan Test Prep. In addition to classroom teaching experience, Joecks has owned and operated businesses in the retail and service industries.
