Making the transition from entrepreneur to successful business owner is full of rewards if you can make the leap. However, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce a whopping 93% of small businesses have annual revenues of less than $250,000 – and 57% have annual revenues of less than $25,000.
In this interactive presentation Doug Pedersen will reveal the TOP 3 reasons WHY small business owners fail to breakout and breakthrough to running a successful small company and show you HOW to use a simple system to ELEVATE your business to unleash your company’s growth potential for the long haul.
If you are strapped, stretched, crazed or stuck, you will find immediate workable tools to help you create the next growth phase of your company. Doug is not just speaking about small business growth, he’s lived it and this is his proprietary system designed to help you ELEVATE too.
