The Business & Entrepreneurship Center (BEC) at Cuesta College is set to host a workshop intended to help local small business owners improve their ability to generate referrals. ‘Rake in the Referrals Workshop’ will take place on the San Luis Obispo Campus on November 12. The workshop will be presented by Mary Cravets, a business coach and speaker from Arizona.

“Business owners know that referrals lead to the best-quality new clients, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing methods,” said Cravets. “What they generally don’t know is how to generate a consistent stream of those referrals. This workshop will provide participants with a simple referral generating system that will result in high-quality referrals in a fraction of the time and on a consistent basis.”

The workshop will be held on the SLO Campus on Tuesday, November 12, in building 5400, room 5403, from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. General admission is $25 per person. Light refreshments will be served. To register and for more information please visit:

The BEC is a program at Cuesta College that works with private, public and nonprofit resources to build strong, sustainable and successful businesses.
