Marge,

No.

Google Adwords is the Advertisement publishing arm of Google sponsored ads that appear in Google Search Results, Youtube, and across many individual websites.

Google My Business, is a free listing for all brick and mortar stores for the companies Name Address, Phone Number, Office Hours etc. The Google My Business listings are important, because they tie into Google Search Results, Google Maps - driving directions, and the Google Search Results - Large Right hand Side Box, known ad the Knowledge Graph.

Google My Business is FREE Business Address- Phone Number listing.
Google Adwords is paid advertisement in which you yourself manage ( or hire some one to manage for you).
