Advice for New Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

I wanted to pass along this link to Jan Norman's blog as it offers good insight for those justing starting in their own business.

Executive Forums offers a program designed for newly minted entrepreneurs we call our Incubator Forum.

This Forum is focused on helping to ensure the success and survival during the early stages of a companies life.

Topics to be explored during the coming year are:

-Actions to address the general economic slowdown/uncertainties
-Understanding the cash flow requirements of launching a business
-Writing and editing a living business plan
-Developing your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)
-Strategies for securing your first client(s)
-Staying the course when faced with unexpected challenges
-How to use networking to build your “buzz”

This education is delivered during the monthly meetings in an interactive style using best practices for adult learning.

I strongly urge anyone reading this to consider a peer advisory board to help you deal with all the challenges and opportunities your new business faces.

Attend our monthly Preview Forum to learn more by clicking the MEETUP Link on this page.
