Starting Your own business is a dream for many who have worked at dead-end jobs, or at jobs where supervisors were not qualified. We feel your pain! But, before you take off on this journey, let's craft a winning strategy. Your Business Model - the way you make money - is critically important to your success. You want to stand out; you want to reach a profitable market segment, but you don't want to go through a bunch of trial and errors to find that "sweet spot". Developing a Profitable Business Model is a great place to start. Please pre-register.

In the next five years, because of excessive Baby Boomers retiring, there will be a glut of businesses for sale all competing for a limited number of buyers in an environment of more restrictive financing and economic uncertainties. The excess supply of small businesses entering the "For Sale" market will drive prices down and make it much more difficult for owners to successfully leave their businesses and meet their financial goals. With a little planning now, you can actually increase the value of your business - maybe significantly! You will be able to increase the number of real opportunities to exit your business and possibly gain thousands of dollars more in additional "cash-to-the-seller". No fee, but pre-registration recommended.
