With a business on the line, education and insights are game-changing. With that in mind, this April, we kicked off our plan to provide monthly workshops for business owners, executives, and people like you. People that would like to learn and get guidance on how to grow and prosper their business.
So, what workshops did we host in the month of April?
How to Build a Business that Works
Business Coaches Tim Jones and Mark McNulty hosted workshops about building a business that works, with or without you. Your goal should be to have a business that runs smoothly without you, so that you can enjoy time off, and when the time is right, you can easily sell it or pass it on to your heirs. Their teachings show that it is simple, as long as you have an organized approach to building your business with a Solid Foundation. After that, it’s simply putting in the work. The topics they touched upon were:
- Mastery – Manage your Money and Your Priorities
- Niche – No Price Competition
- Leverage – Systemize for Consistency and Repeatability
- Team – Hire Slow, Fire Fast, Right People in the Right Seats
- Synergy – Put Your Business on Auto-Pilot!
- Results – Freedom to Chase Your Dreams
Participants engaged in discussions and activities to develop the necessary understanding and skills to implement a business that works, with or without them.
Leveraging Your Community Partnerships to Success
Business Coach Foster McCarl hosted a webinar about leveraging your community partnerships to success. Foster taught business owners how to make their community involvement a great business investment by following a few simple steps.
- Target which organizations you join, based on your goals.
- Evaluate each organization by visiting before you join, so you can learn about its activities, cost, and time commitment.
- Engage in the organization, but don’t over commit. Be authentic, and build relationships based on like, respect, and trust.
- Explain your process. Make sure your referral partners know how you do business, so they’re comfortable referring people to you.
- Be clear on each other’s expectations for the relationship.
- Track the results of your community involvement. Make sure the organizations you belong to are worth your investment, and if they are, return the favor!
Foster’s presentation and engagement activities allowed for participants to get greater insight about how to leverage their community involvement.
