Tusculum College’s Center for Economic Development and Entrepreneurship (CEDE) is offering its “Help Me, Help You” course for the first time in Morristown this spring.
The certificate program, called “Help Me Help You,” is supported by the Cocke County Partnership, the Morristown Area Chamber of Commerce and Crossroads Downtown Partnership. It will be open to 15 participants who will be able to take advantage of this course starting in January.
“Help Me Help You” is a free small business support program consisting of 10 sessions between Jan. 30 and Apr. 17 at the college’s Morristown location at 420 West Morris Blvd., Suite 120.

HMHU, operated by Tusculum College’s Center for Economic Development and Entrepreneurship, is committed to helping participants increase profits, create a business plan, expand their network and improve practical and interpersonal skills through a variety of globally tested activities.
The program has the support of the Tusculum College administration, as well as the School of Business, the Center for Civic Advancement and the Office of Institutional Advancement.
Because of community support, participants will not be charged a fee.
Through the 10-week program, modules will focus on market definition, cost administration, pricing, marketing and sales strategies, body language in business, financing, legal issues, networking and business presentations.
The program provides an opportunity for students and local small-business owners to work and grow together both personally and professionally, thanks to community partners who have picked up expenses in order to allow the program to become established.
Each business person will become connected to a network of thousands of small businesses from all over the world, through HMHU’s global network.
The CEDE, through its seven divisions and additional programs, aims at helping students, business owners, as well as individuals and family members in a number of areas related to entrepreneurship, small business development, and personal finance. All the events and programs are free of charge to participants.
Individuals will be able to have access to skilled individuals in personal finance and attend programs that aim at helping people realize where their money is really coming from, as well as in what is actually being spent. In addition, advice on how to improve this cycle and plan for the future will be provided in a personalized way.
Registration for the Morristown informational session is required.
