"START SMALL, DREAM BIG, AND TAKE CONFIDENT STEPS ALONG THE WAY"
Our mentoring programs have been designed to work directly with you, on a one-to-one basis, to further develop your leadership and business skills while fine-tuning your business strategies, tactical plans and growth milestones.
The Startup Mentoring Program 1 is specifically designed for the new entrepreneur that has limited or no experience owning or running his/her own business. The program is tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual entrepreneur while ensuring that a solid base of business knowledge is built.
The Startup Mentoring Program 2 is designed for the entrepreneur with a solid base of general business knowledge that is focused on growing their business. The program is tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual entrepreneur while ensuring that more in depth knowledge is built in strategic planning, cash management and fundraising, globalization considerations, and business development.
The Small Business Mentoring Program is designed for the experienced entrepreneur that is on the path to profitability and wants to focus on areas of the business that require more attention in order to achieve significant measurable results and enhance the overall value of your business. We'll work together to develop strategies and tactics to identify and seize new opportunities.
It takes a systematic process to get from where you are today to where you want your business to be in the future. If you're like most small business owners, you probably focus most of your time and attention on what you do best, since that's where your interest, passions and experience lie. You may have little or no formal training in business management, leadership, sales, marketing, planning or financing and have never worked with a business consultant.
Our natural tendency is to gravitate towards things that are easier and more comfortable while avoiding the difficult things and then having to drop everything when big problems arise. By doing that, entrepreneurs and business managers are likely to get caught up in the cycle of crisis management that takes your focus away from business development, business management, business leadership and lose sight of your ultimate objectives.
As your business consultant, we help you stay on top of the issues facing your business, develop your business leadership and management skills, and find practical, cost-effective solutions so you can achieve your professional and personal goals.
If you need some hands-on training for your staff or organization, my business workshops can help you operate your business more profitably, effectively and sanely. Workshop topics range from strategic planning, to marketing, solution selling, business finances, presentation skills, global business etiquette, and work life balance.
Personal and professional development skills are critical in today's competitive environment. Your visual identity and personal brand, along with your verbal and non-verbal communication skills, behavior, and appearance are an external representation of your skills, talents, vision and values in life.
Let us help you stand out amongst the thousands of entrepreneurs looking for funding, talent and customers. We'll work together to develop an image that projects self-confidence, power and presence.
