Strategies for success in today’s economy will be one of the featured topics at a free business resource seminar and expo at the Ken Miller Recreation Center on Wednesday, September 7. The seminar will also offer a variety of approaches and techniques that can help position businesses in Torrance and the surrounding areas for success, capitalize on billions of dollars in tax credits, and minimize the frustration of taxation.
