Help Small Businesses Grow
Education is something business owners struggle with in this quickly changing world. Add in the fact that what they need to know may make them uncomfortable — as is the case with bookkeeping, social media or technology. Your organization can add some real value to the business community by offering monthly webinars.
Learning new skills is something every businessperson intends to do but it falls by the wayside as they go about their day-to-day operations. The CEO Minded Program is an invaluable resource for the small business community through educational and empowering programs.
Why It’s Needed?
Our economy is supported by small businesses and the need for information to sustain this growth continues to increase in need. Data collected by the SBA continues to show an increase in the small business community:
- The 28 million small businesses in America account for 54% of all U.S. sales.
- Small businesses provide 55% of all jobs and 66% of all net new jobs since the 1970s.
- The 600,000 plus franchised small businesses in the U.S. account for 40% of all retail sales and provide jobs for some 8 million people.
- The small business sector in America occupies 30-50% of all commercial space, an estimated 20-34 billion square feet.
Furthermore, the small business sector is growing rapidly. While corporate America has been “downsizing”, the rate of small business “start-ups” has grown, and the rate for small business failures has declined.
- The number of small businesses in the United States has increased 49% since 1982.
- Since 1990, as big business eliminated 4 million jobs, small businesses added 8 million new jobs.
Small business owners wear many different hats and are doing whatever it takes to help their company and their team members succeed. Our goal is to make sure we provide them with the necessary resources to do so.
What We Do?
We develop and present professional business workshops for municipalities, government agencies, universities and colleges, civic organizations, corporations, trade associations, banks, and business-oriented conferences. Our goal is to educate business owners in the “business of doing business.”
We have developed workshops/seminars to educate small business owners. Each one stands alone to provide comprehensive information and development of skills in a particular area. As a workshop series, they will serve as a comprehensive overview of business development, including start-up, accounting, marketing, sales, and business planning. We can also provide presentations on government contracting
Our presentations are very interactive. We do not believe in talking “at you.” We think business is a serious subject, but we also think that education should also be a fun experience. We encourage active participation of attendees.
Our presenters are business owners and business professionals. Our goal is to ensure business owners learn from the best in their field.
