How are you assuring that marketing your business or even your abilities and skills are a daily part of how you operate? Marketing is not a short-term function. If you view it that way, it is the very reason you only get short-term, short-lived results. Marketing should be an ongoing, daily function focused on sustainable results within your company just as the very operations must continue every day. When you make marketing an operational function within your company, you will be pleasantly and profitably surprised by the results.

PROFIT MINING WORKSHOP AT CVCC ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 23RD: I will be presenting the Small Business Challenges course titled, "Profit Mining - Improving the Profitability in Your Company" in conjunction with the Catawba Valley Community College Small Business Center in Hickory THIS Thursday, August 23rd from 9 a.m. - noon in the CVCC East Campus building, Room #975. This workshop is not just about number crunching, but about uncovering and discovering hidden profits and cash flow in your business in areas that, chances are, you have not considered. You will learn the three areas to profit-size for better strategic decision making, the four areas of income that most business owners do not properly allocate which directly affect a fifth income area and the three resources not used effectively in conjunction with money to make it stretch further in a business. Best of all, the last hour of the workshop will allow you to put what you have learned immediately into action in your business as I guide you through profit sizing and MORE! You must register in advance for this course by calling 828.327.7000, ext 4117.
