Are you confident that you know what’s working and where any hidden threats are to your business? When is the last time you stepped back and looked at it holistically, identifying how you truly feel about each component? If you’re like most business owners, it’s been a while.
The COVID crisis is an opportunity for reflection, analysis, and investigation. Some business owners will need to make big, painful decisions. Others are facing tremendous opportunity. Making the right decision starts with a crucial first step: understanding your business.
Professional deep dives can take weeks or months, but you can get a to a good starting point in 90 short minutes.
During this workshop, you’ll:
- Review your financials and identify what you think should be improved
- Show your strategy and how you compete in your market
- See what you know about your customers and what you need to find out more about
- Understand how your employees are doing in their jobs, and how your culture is shaped
- Clarify which systems and processes you have in place, and which ones should be changed
At the end of the workshop, your business will be summarized on a page. You’ll gain an understanding of which parts are going well, and which ones need work. You will leave with an initial list of next steps for bringing your business to the next level, or making tough decisions.
You will leave the workshop with 2 important documents to get you started on your journey:
- A 360° snapshot of your business on a single page, with levels of achievement in key areas
- An emotional heatmap of what’s going well and poorly at your business, and early ideas of how to address it
- A To-Do list of areas to get answers for
Please Note: To be able to get the most out of the 90 mins, you will need to be prepared with your financial statements mainly your Income Statement/Profit & Loss Statement for 2019.
This workshop is geared towards entrepreneurs who are already in operations and have generated revenue. You don’t necessarily need to be profitable yet, but you should have a clear path to profitability and have already tested your revenue model.
As part of the registration process, we will be sending you a list of questions to ensure you qualify. Space is extremely limited, but don’t fret if you don’t make it in this time around. We’ll be doing several workshops geared to all stages of your entrepreneurial journey.
