Event Description 2014 is right around the corner, and now is the time to prepare your plans to make sure it's your best year yet. This Chamber U will present a framework for thinking about your business in a structured way, and although there is little time to work on your business plan in the session, you will leave with worksheets and the knowledge of what to do next. This is a practical session that will cover:
  • Identifying the business you're REALLY in (chances are, it's not what you think)
  • Identifying your Ideal Client/Customer
  • Identifying what you REALLY offer your clients (again, it's usually different than what you think you sell)
  • Clarifying your goals for next year (and how to set them so you can achieve them)
  • Establishing metrics by which you can measure your progress
 
Come out, bring a friend, and prepare for a rocking' 2014!
