Business Bootcamp

Starting and running your own business is not for the weak at heart.  It requires a rugged individual to step up, put his money, blood, sweat and tears where his mouth is and generate a revenue stream by offering products and services that are needed by people within the community.  You cannot just be a good at applying your trade to run your own business...your business will eat you alive if you do not manage things properly. 

It requires confidence, motivation, drive and courage to be a successful entrepreneur.  It also requires a detailed understanding of how to successfully launch a new business; how to create new products, services, and results; how to manage customer expectations and satisfaction; and how to balance quality with cost and schedule.

You increase your chances of having a successful business by 300% if you treat your business like a project and if you apply proven project management processes within your product and service offerings.
