As a small business owner or nonprofit leader, you know all too well the challenge of running a business – the wearing “every hat known to man” concept in the hopes of keeping expenses low, operating efficiently, and bringing in new customers. And that’s just the day-to-day struggles you face to keep you IN business.
Forget about growing your business or organization. That requires time and money that you just don’t have. Right?
Well, no. Not really.
The problem is, you’re spending your time and money in all the wrong places.
Join us for this down n' dirty session that will take you through practical strategies of growing your business and hitting your revenue targets.
Based on The Silver Lining Action Plan (SLAP™), a business methodology that has been used by thousands of successful small business owners, this session will go over the steps necessary to create a one year action plan to grow your business
By the end of the process, you will understand how you should really be spending your money and where you should be focusing your time day-to-day; so that, with every step, you get closer to your financial goal and your big vision!
