The Key Questions of Business Tackled

Business planning. How do we go about creating a business plan that actually becomes an important tool for your business? We tackle a number of those key questions– of business and being a business owner that lie at the basis of any business that sustains you for years to come.

The first question we address in the Foundation webinars is: What is the most important measure of success in business? How do we know if we are doing it well and sustainably. You might be surprised to hear that it’s not “Making Profit”. The most important thing is the word FUN, Fun in business to be precise… ensuring that business itself is as much Fun as you can make it.

The next question we tackle is: How can we become more efficient in the use of our time… How can we become more disciplined, How can we become a Master of our time as business owners… and it all starts with two really simple questions.

The third foundation question we get to the bottom of is: What is the Purpose of my business and why would anybody else care about that? Surprisingly again, the answer is yet again not to do with profit and money.

You will work through the topic with myself and sometimes I’ll invite specialist guest presenters to join us as well.

What you’ll get:

At the webinars, we will dig right in so that you will walk away with a deep understanding of the question and the answers and what they mean for you and your business. You will also walk away with one or more simple practical actions that you can take in the week after the webinar to help you move one step closer to implementing that new understanding in your business and start to build a Fun business that sustains you for years to come.

See you soon face-to-face or online,
