A real entreprenuear would have spent the holidays plotting their strategy and polishing their business plan - yeah right!
Let's have one mega-meeting for all Auckland business owners and focus on planning. Tell me what you would like from these meetups, and I'll share something on the One-Page-Plan system that has helped the likes of Virgin Australia, Vodafone and others get to where they are today.
If you want to be involved but can't make the suggested time I've setup an alternative on Saturday afternoon. Details of this can be found on our MeetUp page http://www.meetup.com/businessownersnetwork/
The Business Owners Support Network is free to business owners only. Sales Representives, Franchise owners, Network Level Marketers, Real Estate agents are not eligible for membership.
When & Where
Having supplied computer hardware and services to businesses for over 20 years I have realised that many business owners are going it alone, often re-inventing the wheel and making the same mistakes.
There are an endless number of organisations offering to help the hapless business owner 'make it big'. You can find online coaching, or sign up with Business Mentors NZ, get your own local business coach or enter the Icehouse program. Each has their merits, pitfalls and most importantly - cost!
How to solve this problem? I created the business owners support network to get business owners talking to each other, sharing their experiances and providing a platform of your peers to bounce ideas off. Talk to them before taking a chance with your time and money.
