Getting the most out of smartphones for small-business owners

Today’s smartphone is much more than something to use to make call  – these devices are loaded with tools and software that can be used to transform small-businesses.

The Lake Houston Chamber of Commerce, in junction with the Lone Star College-Small Business Development Center, is hosting a “Work Smarter, Not Harder With Your Smartphone” seminar featuring Michelle Guerra, technology business consultant.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for small-business owners to be introduced to techniques they can use to help organize and run their business,” said Miguel Lopez, LSC SBDC executive director. “The margin of success for many small business is razor thin. Maximizing resources they already have can make all the difference in the world.”

The event takes place Thursday, Dec. 14, from 8 – 9 a.m. at Homewood Suites by Hilton at Kingwood Parc. The cost to attend is $10 for chamber members and $15 for non-members. Registration is required and can be made at LakeHouston.org.
