Are you a millennial entrepreneur? Here's what you need to know

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - This week marks Global Entrepreneurship Week and the Louisiana Small Business Development Center at McNeese State University will host an event geared towards millennials who are thinking about starting their own businesses or have already done so and need some guidance.

The topics that will be discussed at the event include how to take care of your credit, the best route to get a loan and McNeese State University resources.

Aaron Cain, Young, a 24-year-old business owner, opened his air conditioning repair business two years ago and said although he faced several obstacles along the way, it didn't discourage him. He hopes to inspire other millennials to take that step.

"There's a lot to it; you have to have drive; you have to stay focused; you think being your own boss is easy and you get to pick your own work days but  you don't… every customer is your boss pretty much and you just have to stay focused on figure out what you want to do and just be passionate about it," Cain said.

The event is free and starts at 6 p.m. this evening, Nov. 15, and last until 8 p.m. at the SEED Center, 4310 Ryan St., Lake Charles.
