Session I: Product
In this first session we will get in to everything it’s going to take to make, protect and market your product. Even great ideas can fail if they aren’t prepared, protected and presented properly.

Let’s get organized! Whether it is sales, production, finance or any other area of your business, everything needs a process. This is where we put all the pieces together.
Session III: People
Finding the right people is key to building a winning business. Your team, vendors, strategic partners and the RIGHT customers are the difference in becoming the best at whatever you do.
Session IV: Profit
Profit is the name of the game. Putting together a break even analysis, preparing a budget, startup cost and projecting cost and sales aren’t just busy work. We will go through the tools that keep you prospering and profitable.
