Quick Start Shoreline for Tuesday August 13

Sunday, August 11, 2013

The Tuesday Quick-Start Shoreline Business Workshop for start-up, existing or potential business owners will be held on Tuesday, August 13th, from 12 noon to 1:30pm at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Avenue N.

Quick-Start Shoreline is presented by Shoreline Community College Small Business Accelerator and the City of Shoreline. The sessions are free and open to the public; feel free to bring a brown bag lunch or a snack.

  • How can the Government help you Fund up to 35% of Your Retirement? 
  • Which Small Business Retirement Plan/Option Should You Choose? 

HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO SAVE FOR RETIREMENT?  It is a timeless question as enigmatic as “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?”  :-)  Of course, your Retirement is a much more important question to ponder. And it is one that has implications every day of your working life. It’s even more important for you as a Business Owner. This Tuesday, at Shoreline City Hall at the lunch hour during the QuickStart Shoreline Discussion Series, we will tackle this age-old question … And get some ANSWERS!   

We will also be discussing ways in which the Government can FINANCE part of your Retirement!  There are so many options to sift through for Retirement vehicles … From Traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs to SEP IRAs to SIMPLE Plans to Individual-K Plans, and MORE!  Which makes sense for you and your business? 

This discussion will be geared to Business Owners of businesses with 10 or fewer employees.  Others are welcomed to attend, however!
