Fort Worth - Chapter 120

You've survived! Now it's time to thrive. Owning and operating a small business can be overwhelming and frustrating. But with the help of SCORE mentors and your peers, you will see it can also be rewarding and successful.

This workshop will give you a common language to use and to work through business challenges. The message is: There are six simple concepts. If you get these right, you'll be ahead of your competitors. Once the foundation is laid and common language exists, innovation and creativity are encouraged. 

Learn key concepts that are fundamental to your business success centered around the following themes:

  • Operate - Trend Your Numbers
  • Navigate - The Business Life Cycle
  • Communicate - Your Core Value

Workshop Fee $25
