Stepping Up To Leading the Growth of Your Business on Tuesday was fun and energizing. The breakout groups were the high point where everyone shared suggestions and thoughts on the challenges small business face. Thank you to Townsquared.com for sponsoring the lunch. You are invited to join this smal lbusiness network. But the one hour workshop was too short to get into deciding on a course of action. We cover decisions that generate value in the two-hour workshop Step Up to Growing Your Business this Tuesday on August 23.
Here are the suggestions and ideas on the three BIG issues from the break out sessions:
Issue One: The complexity and rising cost of marketing without clear results
Issue Two: Hiring quality employees, managing turnover and rising wages
In the two-hour workshop Step Up to Growing Your Business on Tuesday, August 23 from7 - 9 p.m. at NextSpace Berkeley use a framework to decide on the number one strategy to act on.
Our key topic will be how everything the company does supports revenue generation.

That isn't slow growth. Steady Growth is achieved through strategic thinking and action.
We encourage setting a range of goals and objectives with high and low targets to aim for and learn from. Items to set goals for are pretty standard and include the external context:
