It’s Your Business: How to Launch Your Business for Success and Growth
When you run a business, you wear many hats. You are the lead in operations, product development, financials, and marketing. You offer your service or product and you are most likely also responsible for sales.
It’s exciting to turn a dream into reality, and it takes some time to learn the ins and outs of business, especially marketing and sales.
Is this your year to start or grow a business?
Most new entrepreneurs are good at their craft (product or service) but don’t know how to run, manage and grow a business. This is what It’s Your Business Part One is all about!
Hosted by the Jefferson Economic Development Institute, in support of your prosperity
