PRLog - May 29, 2012 - CHICAGO -- La'Shon Anthony has presented business seminars at Jewish Vocational Services of Chicago since 2010. Now, business owners increasingly want to learn how to use social media and improve their sales. So, JVS applied for a grant from Citi Foundation and it was approved. And due to the overwhelming demand of Ms. Anthony's sessions, they invited her to return. Between May 2012 and April 2013, four workshops will be offered - 2 for beginners and 2 for those with more experience. All courses will be two hours long and all of them are free to the public.
Here are descriptions of the first couple of workshops:
