LAUNCH: Your business is up and running. You may not yet be profitable and things still feel new.

EXPANSION: Your business is generating a consistent source of income and you regularly see new customers. You are looking at new opportunities for your business.

RENEWAL: Business conditions, leadership and other factors can lead to changes in direction. This is a time to look at new processes and big decisions to move the business forward. It is often when businesses pursue new avenues for growth.

EXIT: You are ready to make a big change in the business and exit to new opportunities. Business succession plans need to be identified early to achieve your desired outcomes.

BUSINESS CONCEPT & PRODUCT: Creating and refining your business concept toward products & services that have growth potential and revenue models that propel your business.
