A little FYI for anyone interested...there will be a 2 day Irrigation Basics Course in Baton Rouge at Ralph & Kakoos on Bluebonnet on Nov 7th & 8th from 8am to 5pm each day. After the course is finished on the 8th, attendees will be allowed to take the State Certificaion Exam. The cost of the Course is $200 and the exam if you choose to take it is an additional $50. You can get the info from the Dept of Ag and Forestry website or by calling 225-205-4533 or by emailing Ron Seffield at rsheffield@agcenter.lsu.edu

Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program

Folks, I just completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program at Delgado. If you have any desire to GROW your business and need help getting there, this program is a great start. It is intense, very well thought out and designed to put you face to face with the tools necessary for you to succeed.

The staff, presenters and business advisers are all first class in there respective professions. You will be challenged, pushed and challenged mentally like never before. The curriculum is the best that money can buy but the catch is that if you are accepted into the program, it cost you your time and brain power. Your tuition is covered by Goldman Sachs.

Do your diligence and research. Oh by the way, Warren Buffett is on the advisory board.

Here are two links for you. Good Luck

Z71, take it again in two weeks. It took me going to the class 3 times and taking the test twice. Don't give up.
