January 25 at Crystal Mountain

 

TRAVERSE CITY, MIBusinesses can get the New Year off to a good start by learning how to create goals and develop an executable plan at a workshop January 25 at Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa in Thompsonville. “Guide to Small Business Goal Setting 2016” will run from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is being sponsored by the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in partnership with the West Michigan Tourist Association.  

The workshop will be taught by SBDC Assistant Growth Team Manager, Melissa Angel and SBDC Small Business Consultant, Joni Krolczyk. They will lead participants through several exercises to help them define the changes they want to make in their business for the coming year and beyond.  Using a proven method, Angel and Krolczyk will walk participants through goal setting for key areas of their business, including finance and customer service. The materials and worksheets presented in the workshop will give businesses the background and framework for creating a successful, actionable plan. Post training, an SBDC consultant will provide follow up to support businesses in the refinement of their plan.
