Every business professional has a perception of what success is. Many of us compare it to other companies, business professionals or what others have told you what it should be or you have always said to yourself...someday I will be successful and I will... Today we are going to define your success and what you want it to be - create a plan to get there and build from where you are now.
Why is it essential to every successful business professional? Many of us are so stressed that we go from hour to hour - day to day and not take the time to plan for our success. Some have created a plan and have not reviewed it in months. This workshop is a must for everyone to attend. Register early - Workshop Size is Limited do to the activities involved.

Premeditated Business Networking
Because…success doesn’t just happen.
Can you tell a “professional visitor” from “someone who really wants to get business done?”
Have you ever met someone, had a brief discussion, then afterwards wondered . . .
· What was her/his name again?
· What did he/she say she did?
· Why would I care?
· Did he/she want something?
There are those that dive into a well-rehearsed elevator pitch....like a runaway train, full speed ahead without regard or understanding of where they are going.
Some people believe in the “throw enough crap at the wall something will stick” approach to selling. But when you are selling yourself, what you do or how you get it done, this method can just leave a real mess to clean up later.
Many business professionals look for business in an Apple Orchard when they should be in the Orange Grove. Would you know if you were in the right place?
When marketing your business to your peers, associates and potential clients they need to be excited to do business with you. Not just know what you do.
In this 3.5 – 4 hour workshop:
· You will learn how to market your business and build a team of strategic sales professionals that work together.
· Take a quick tour of where you are at now.
· Map out your business and strategic partners - creating clarity like never before.
· Create a concise marketing plan and set goals.
· Learn how to effectively work an event and capitalize on every opportunity.
· Many people think business networking is Facebook, LinkedIn or You Tube what role do they play in making connections?
· We will tie in Social Networking with Business Conventional Networking and how they work together.
We will learn how to capitalize on the 78% peer recommendation for your products and services.
After this workshop you will have a clear, concise understanding of how to market and communicate your business.
Because Knowledge Is Your Power,

Cranley backs city manager’s decision not to strike a deal with Mahogany’s owner Mayor John Cranley said one of City Manager Harry Black’s first decisions – not to propose forgiving a $300,000 loan to Mahogany’s owner Liz Rogers– was the right one.
