This April, as part of National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Month, AARP and the Small Business Association (SBA) are working jointly to link thousands of Americans over age 50 with small business development resources, live workshops, conferences and mentoring programs.  The goal:  to give aspiring entrepreneurs support to start or grow a business.

Here in Massachusetts, AARP and the SBA are hosting four workshops designed to help you put your start-up plans into action.  The programs feature experts and resources to help aspiring entrepreneurs with topics ranging from writing a business plan to seeking start-up capital.
