Wednesday, May 6 (8-10 a.m.): Taking Your Small Business from Invisble to Powerful
Presented by: John Dano, The Entrepreneur Center
Science has proven what business owners NOT doing.
Increasing sales and servicing your customers is a science and most owners have massive blind spots or are completely blind to the science. It is not wrong or right--it is just the reality. In my short program 30 minutes to an hour I will demonstrate the blind spots that owners "potentially" have. I will also showcase a framework on how to take any business in any market from invisible to a place of power and profits.
This is no hype business development based on science being used in corporations and small business I personally own and consult.
