Would you like to make extra income selling homemade baked goods? Do you want to support local entrepreneurs with big dreams but little capital? Are you a sucker for homemade cookies?
Selling homemade foods that do not require refrigeration—like cookies, cakes, and jam— is a great way for entrepreneurs to get started small in their own homes without having to spend thousands of dollars on a commercial kitchen space. In this workshop we’ll discuss how to start a cottage food business, and our efforts to expand DC’s cottage food law to make it easier to run a cottage food business.
Join the Institute for Justice, Dreaming Out Loud, and the Latino Economic Development Center on Wednesday, May 8th to learn from experienced food business counselors about:
- How to figure out if a cottage food business is right for you
- The steps to starting a cottage food business in DC
- Financing and business planning resources for starting a cottage food business
- Free and low cost resources available to all food business entrepreneurs
- How our coalition is working to expand DC’s current cottage food law by allowing all direct, maker-to-customer sales and removing the $25,000 revenue cap
- Next steps for meeting with Councilmembers and getting this proposal passed as soon as possible
When? Wednesday, May 8th, 6-7:30pm
Where? Capitol View Neighborhood Library
Meeting Room One
5001 Central Avenue SE
Washington, D.C. 20019
Dinner will be provided.
If you have any questions or would like to RSVP, please contact Brooke Fallon at email@example.com or (703) 682-9320.
The power of storytelling: Why your story matters and tips on how to share it, to grow your business
We have been telling stories for as long as we’ve been human–they are an absolutely essential part of our day-to-day communications. When done well, storytelling can do wonders for a business: such as turn a brand into a legacy, create a robust marketing strategy, generate profit and win the loyalty and affection of audiences.
When you’re running your own small business, your personal story can be an integral part of your brand. It can make you relatable to customers and help differentiate you from your competition. The power of story lets consumers go on a journey and connects meaning on new levels and they are more willing to follow your mission. In this workshop, we’ll help you identify the mission of your business, develop talking points that you can also use to train employees and business partners, and practice a short pitch.
Whether you’re preparing an investor pitch, creating marketing materials, or just talking to friends and family about what you do, we’ll help you craft your story in a compelling way to help build your brand.

SMALL BUSINESS INSURANCE 101
Protect Your Small Business
You work hard to make your small business thrive – you need to protect that investment of time and money! No matter how careful you are, things happen – someone could fall on your property and hurt themselves, your data security could be compromised, or a natural disaster could damage your property or equipment. And all of those things can be extremely expensive to manage, especially if lawsuits or long downtime are involved. That’s where insurance comes in.
But what kind of coverage do you need? What will it cost? Where do you even start?
Jacqueline Jeter, Commercial Insurance Specialist, will walk you through the jungle of insurance coverage, terminology, the "whens and whethers", hidden discounts, and more of business insurance.
Jacqueline Jeter exemplifies creative, strategic service in every stage of your insurance consultation and needs evaluation. Clients keep returning to Jacqueline and send her referrals because of her 25 years of professional experience and her access to a full-service insurance agency with both personal and business insurance specialists. It is this comprehensive, prescriptive approach to evaluating insurance needs that sets her apart from her peers.
Jacqueline holds Life, Health & Accident, Property, and Casualty insurance licenses in multiple states. Her passion is educating the public about insurance because those outside of the industry rarely understand its unique language, coverage limits and requirements.
