workshops are held in the conference room!



Starting and growing a business is not an intuitive process. But there IS a process. One of the tricks is understanding what your business needs most at a given point in time, so that you can prioritize where to spend your time and energy and maximize the results you want to achieve. One way to do that is to understand what stage of business you are in.

So, what stage of business are you in? Are your current priorities and actions in alignment with what your business really needs right now? If not, you could be spending a lot of time and energy on the wrong things. It may sound simple, but the fact is that many businesses make the mistake of investing too much in the wrong things at the wrong time, or event the right things at the wrong time. And those can be expensive mistakes.

For example, the needs of a fledgling startup are different from a business that is scaling to accommodate growth. Taking the time to understand the stages of business development is critical to making strategic decisions and avoiding costly delays that can hold your business back. When you know where you stand, you will save time, money and energy by understanding what stage of business you are in, and what to focus on to get to your next milestone.

In this hands-on workshop, we'll focus on some of the earlier stages that small businesses go through, and why some stages require more focus on marketing and sales, while others require an investment in systems, operations, or HR. Understanding the evolving needs of your business can help you anticipate (and budget for!) important investments of time and money that will help your business grow, one manageable stage at a time.

Takeaways from this workshop include:

-Understand the stages of business development, and how this impacts your ability to succeed -Identify what stage of business you are in, and how to set realistic, achievable business goals -Learn how to anticipate your business needs over time and better plan for growth -Opportunities to get hot seach coaching on your individual business challenges
