Is your small business ready to grow? Are you afraid to take the next steps? How do you find staff? How to you find the resources to hire employees? How do you find the courage to take the risks needed to expand?

These questions and more will be answered at the upcoming October 3 meeting of the Downtown Altoona Business Community, to be held at The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art (SAMA) at 1210 11th Avenue, from 6 – 7:30 pm.

Playtime Pottery and Clay Cup owner, Sarah Vogel, and John Horell, president of KIZ Resources, will share their experiences. In just over two years, Vogel has started two businesses in two locations. Horell has leveraged his accounting background to help business owners take advantage of government incentives.
