Description

Join us for a two-part event during Small Business Week to help your small business start, grow, and succeed!

In Part 1 (9-10:30 a.m.), learn how to make a profit through strategic planning. Learn the basic differences between a business plan and a strategic plan so you can project the sales, cash flow, and profitability needed to start and/or expand your business. We'll cover break-even analysis, using strategic models, and making sound financial decisions.

In Part 2 (10:30 a.m.-12 p.m.), we'll cover time-management basics. Do you often feel stressed out by the amount of work that lies ahead? Does it seem like whenever you cross something off your to-do list, another three items take its place? While owning a small business can seem overwhelming at times, the key is to complete the must-do tasks efficiently and effectively, while dropping the less important items. Attend this seminar to learn how to manage your time, prioritize your priorities, and help your business succeed.
