Many retirees are starting businesses who have no experience in business, as well as those who have been laid off or need an extra income. There are so many startups (600,000/yr according to the SBA) that if you don’t know what you’re doing, you don’t have a chance – they show around an 80% failure rate.
Do you want a huge edge over your competition? And to prevent that 80% failure rate from being your business? Then register for the FREE Webinar on Sept. 24th at 8pm CST (9pm EST, 6pm PST) where Dawn Cassara, the Business Detail Specialist, will explain why every SMB should be using these large business practices, with examples!
Our 5 Step training series will help those entrepreneurs who are starting their business, or need to kick-start it, and need more understanding of how business tracking can help and, as a bonus, how to build an audience for your products/services!
Are you running a business or a hobby?
Here are the steps we will be addressing (along with your requests):
It will be a 6 week process, but we may well add some extra discussion points based on questions that you ask if they are relevant and we know the answer!
I personally worked in large corporations for 20 years as a business analyst, then for the last 15 in my own business helping SMB’s. My cohorts are just as experienced!
It all goes back to tracking, so if you’re using or planning to keep using Excel, please be aware that Excel is not a tracking tool. It will only last you so long before it becomes to be a hindrance. One particular example, among many, is that you cannot automatically update your web site forms to Excel, so that means you have to take the time to manually enter it. That is exactly the kind of time waster that we are going to teach you to eliminate!
Many who want to start a business do not know exactly what they want to do with it – what will make them the most money and what will be a waste of time. I am helping a client now who she can’t decide if her expertise in alternative medicine should focus on sales (and resales) or consulting.
Both roads will take a lot of time and effort, and they are not necessarily mutually exclusive, but both will cost time and expense, and she is hesitant to invest until she knows what she wants to do.
We can help her with what needs to be done for each case, but ultimately she has to decide where her time and budget should be concentrated. One critical factor is that this person does not like to do public speaking, and consultants must enjoy that aspect of getting known in their field, not force themselves. Consulting is connecting – feeling the pain.
So this series will help her as well as others who need a simple, but laser focused, plan for their business.
We are limiting this training to 5 SMBs,
so first to sign up wins this round!
