By Staff | Oct 7, 2010


KAHULUI — The county Office of Economic Development offers free “Brown Bag” lunch workshops at the Maui County Business Resource Center at Maui Mall across from IHOP.

Would a term loan of up to $30,000 help you start or expand your business? “Business Financing Available!” is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 8, from noon to 1 p.m.

Would an emergency loan of up to $2,000 help your business immediately? Do you have bad credit? Has a bank rejected your loan inquiry?

If any of these situations apply to you and your business, hear what Susie Thieman, CEO of Maui Economic Opportunity’s Business Development Corp., has to say about their loan programs.

Healthy conflict in the workplace stimulates creativity, competition and opportunity for success.

Learn to identify sources of unhealthy conflict, techniques to manage it and the concept of an integrated conflict management system at “The Hidden Costs of Conflict” on Wednesday, Oct. 13, from noon to 1 p.m.
