MANY small business owners feel perplexed about their business focus, wonder which direction they should pursue or options they should take, and find it hard to promote what their business does.
The daily grind for small business can be deadly. Companies are flooded with calls, demands, paperwork, people issues and capacity problems. Business owners know they spend too much time in the business rather than on it and so they battle from one week to the next.
Breaking out of the daily grind requires clear focus on what is important in building a business rather than what is urgent. Getting ideas, direction and plans on paper is one way to make sure the daily grind doesn't kill a business.
Just simply getting a clear focus is a great start on preventing insanity as well, says Maxell Consulting . Insanity comes from doing the same actions and expecting a different outcome - so by simply making a list of the outcomes a client wants to be different will force a client to develop a list of things to do differently, according to Maxell Consulting.
Maxell Consulting has teamed up with Marketing Integration to deliver the ClearVision workshop. It is a one-day workshop designed to help small business owners develop a vision into clear plans and provide tools to make sure the vision becomes reality. There are 15 places available.
Maxell Consulting is urging business owners to invest in the one day workshop “to gain a ClearVision”.
The workshop will take clients through a practical and pragmatic process that will help them clarify what they want for themselves and the direction they want to head in.
Participants will develop:
1. Five year goals and a vision for their business
2. Value proposition for their clients
3. Action plans to make it happen.
Attendees will receive:
* Templates to complete a business plan
* Tools to assist with business analysis and financial projections
* Informative articles on growing a business.
The workshop takes place on Thursday 24 August 2006 at the Charsfield Hotel, 478 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne. Workshop registration is 9.45am for a 10.00am start and a finish at 6.00 pm.
All day parking is available at Kings Car Park, cnr Leopold St and St Kilda Rd or across the road at 499 St Kilda Rd.
