IDEA: You have an idea for a business, but it isn’t off the ground yet. You may have some of the pieces in place or a working plan but aren’t yet in business. This is sometimes also called “pre-venture”.

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.

CUSTOMER RELATIONS & BRANDING: Finding the right customers, understanding community demographics and building a brand that enhances public relations, marketing and networking are critical to your success.
