Do you need guidance in your small business?

Image 1

Whether you are just starting out as a small business owner or re-organizing your current business, you may need the help of a small business expert, like myself, to guide you down the correct path.

I hear from many business owners on a daily basis who just don’t have the time, the skills, or the motivation to work on some of those much-needed aspects of creating their business plan (and carrying it out).

 Let me guide you through your IDEAS, your WANTS, your NEEDS, and we can work together to bring a vision to your business.

During this 3-part online session, you will attain the guidance that will assist you in:

  • Making better business decisions regarding where and when to spend your hard-earned time and money!

  • Feeling confident enough to build your overall business goals and timelines, and reasonably carry them out.

  • Creating a manageable budget while learning how to successfully implement it into your business.

Beginning Phase –

This phase will help you figure out what your business

needs and wants might be.  It will pull out your ideas, and it will

walk you through the process of crafting your goals based

on your skill level.

Middle Phase –

This phase will assist you in creating attainable goals, and

get you thinking about your marketing plan as well as your

overall budget to reach those goals.

End Phase –

This phase will show you how to not only carry out your goals,

but it will teach you how to implement your marketing plan

while sticking to your business budget.

BONUS:  Each phase includes a downloadable PDF workbook to help you organize your thoughts, ideas, needs, and wants as you go through the 3-part session.

 

Interested???  Not sure if this is for you?
You are likely stuck in a rut, trying to figure out what tasks will bring you the most bang for your buck, right? What if you had the guided support to SHOW you how much money you can save, how much time you can save, and how much you can actually get accomplished to create an efficient and productive business?  Interested now?

If your business is exhibiting problems, or if there is a skill gap that is stopping you, or if your company has grown very quickly and you simply cannot keep up, then investing time and money into my guided support session can get you back on track, and off to a great start.
