Are you challenged to keep up with the daily routines in your business, knowing you need to do more to focus on growth, but uncertain what to do? GrowthWheel is a hands-on, action-oriented program designed to help entrepreneurs at all stages overcome their barriers to growth.

All businesses, from pre-venture start-ups to established enterprises, must address four key challenges. They need an attractive business concept, lasting customer relations, profitable operations, and a strong organization. Attendees will participate in a hands-on workshop introducing the GrowthWheel toolkit, and will get a sense of how empowering it can be to work with a certified advisor.
