The Duquesne University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is offering two AARP Foundation Work for Yourself @50+ programs in Pittsburgh.

Designed for low- and moderate-income adults aged 50+, these workshops will provide participants with the knowledge, support and resources to make informed decisions and take the right first steps toward successful self-employment.

The workshop will be offered on Monday, Nov. 6, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Riverside Center for Innovation located at 700 River Ave. in Pittsburgh. The workshop will be offered again on Tuesday, Dec. 5, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh located at 2177 Centre Ave. (Hill District). The cost is $15.

"The decision to start a business can be both exciting and daunting," said Dr. Mary McKinney, executive director of the SBDC at Duquesne University. "The Work for Yourself @50+ programs break the choices down for adults over 50 in an approachable way through five steps that consider everything from potential and perils of working for yourself to ways to find trustworthy support and services."
