Two management tasks facing any home based business owner are how to set up and keep good business records, and how to determine the price for your product or service. To help you with these tasks, University of Maine Cooperative Extension is offering two home business workshops on these topics through the Piscataquis County Extension Office in Dover-Foxcroft. Instructors will be Extension Home Business Specialist, James C. McConnon, and Extension Educator, Roger Merchant.
