Working ON the business. That's what we try to help business owners do because they are usually so busy working IN their business that they neglect taking care of things that can make their business stronger.  Of course, getting that next sale or making the product is important but those few hours per year  working on the business can give owners some of the highest ROI anywhere.  And, there are some upcoming programs by The Business Growth Center and its partners that folks should take notice of.
