(Medford, Ore.) — The Small Business Development Center at Southern Oregon University’s Higher Education Center in Medford will host a free, one-hour workshop on “The Art of Buying or Selling a Business” at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15.

The workshop will be held at the Higher Education Center, at 101 S. Bartlett St., in Medford.

Gary Einhorn, who operates the Entrepreneurial Ear business coaching service in Ashland, will be the featured presenter. He will discuss how to determine what a business is worth, when may be the best time to buy or sell, and the pros and cons of using a business broker to facilitate a sale.

Einhorn has created, owned and managed seven successful businesses over the past 35 years and has faced many of the same challenges as other business owners. He also hosts a local radio show called “The Entrepreneurial Ear” on KSKQ 89.5 FM.

The workshop is presented by SOU’s Small Business Development Center and sponsored by Umpqua Bank. To register or for more information, call (541) 552-8300.
