Our Next Level Business Workshop is designed for owners who are ready to grow their businesses, be more efficient and generate additional revenue. This four-week course provides the focus you need to explore business fundamentals more deeply, particularly in the ways that relate to your day-to-day challenges and opportunities. Owners use their own businesses as a case study in this brief series of action-oriented classes, which are half the size of our Business Foundations I classes for more individualized attention and hands-on learning. This workshop is designed for business owners looking for assistance in the following areas: Changing business processes to increase your capacity as both owner and manager Converting sales opportunities into repeat customers Introducing new products or finding a new target market Scheduling your time, and focusing on revenue-generating tasks Defining your sales process and calculating projections Keeping up with demand while expanding strategically Telling customers your story Receiving support from other business owners with similar challenges Additionally, it’s for business owners who: Have one year of revenue Are willing to commit to four weekly sessions and 3-4 hours of research and business development activities each week Are ready to participate with and support other business owners Are ready to see changes take place in their business What do our Foundations II graduates have to say? Next Level Business Workshops are a perfect chance for the harried small business owner to take a deep breath and focus on breaking down their biggest challenges step by step. The class is very self-guided, almost like a small business therapy session. The questions and evaluations asked in the class require you to get a handle on your details and collect honest information about where you stand in your business – how you’re spending your time and money, what your costs really look like, who your customers are – and use that information to set a roadmap for increased success. If you’re running a business and putting your paperwork on the backburner, or feel like you’re always doing a million things but not getting where you need to be, and you haven’t stopped to thoroughly take stock of what’s happening and how to change course, this workshop is a great opportunity to assess your strengths and weaknesses, and set off in the right direction with new resolve. – Brian Watson Sick String Guitar Portland Custom Shop 1115 SE Morrison, Portland OR 97214 Times: The course consists of four three-hour sessions.
