Every business has their ups and downs and can get trapped in focusing on one thing. How does a business remain profitable and sustainable? How does a business get through the white water, but not find themselves on a treadmill or in a big rut? In this seminar you will discover that the all businesses are the same, whether you are building landscapes, homes or steel structures, or selling snow and maintenance contracts or used books. You will learn that successful businesses are simultaneously concentrated on Staff, Clients, Sales, Profit and Safety.
