About this Event

Welcome. You are about to take a journey of sight and sound into the world of PROSPERITY.

Prosperity being the state of flourishing, thriving, good fortune or successful social status, which may include wealth … but also, includes other factors which can be a part of independence and wealth. Much of it is about achieving happiness and health.

You will be immersed in a curriculum that involves learning about the importance and use of the NAICS; the importance of YOUR business story; the real costs related to operating the business; the difference between marketplace and market; the power of the PITCH; the “protections” embedded in the Success4mula™; Porter’s Five Forces; disaster preparedness, exit strategies and succession planning.

Starting Sept. 14, The Next Level will held each week on Mondays, from 12-1:30pm, and will run for 12 weeks until Nov. 30th.
