Small Business Fitness Workout

Do you have a Business Fitness Plan?  Yes a fitness plan.  We often think in terms of personal fitness, but your business has a fitness level too.

Often, business plans are lethargic (or non-existent) documents that hold little relevance to the operation of the business; establishing meaningful milestones, goals, and strategic objectives will truly serve as guides for business decisions, as well as indicators of progress and success.

Many small businesses are unable to determine true costs, failing to “weigh-in” all the factors that contribute to the overall cost of operating the business.

The weight of expenses frequently suffocates the growth or continuance of small businesses.  Incorporating cash flow management strategies into daily operations is key.

Precious time is often lost creating unique documents; you can improve efficiency by “exercising” the use of helpful business templates.

Traffic on the business website need not be sluggish; there are ways to “energize” the features and content on your site, and “realize the benefits” of search engine optimization (SEO).  Even those without websites will learn strategies to improve the “profile” and customer awareness of the business.

Local Workforce Investment Boards like the Lincoln Trail Workforce Board are working to help small business assess their business fitness level through Small Business Fitness Workouts.

And there is no cost to attend.

If you own a business in the Lincoln Trail counties of the Wired65 region (Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, Larue, Marion, Meade, Nelson, and Washington), be sure to apply at for one of five 4-hour training sessions held at the Regional Education Center in Radcliff.

Training dates are April 7, 14, 21, 28 and May 5

Application Deadline is March 31
