Small Business Makeover

Is your small business the success you want it to be?

If not, maybe your business isn't ready for it. If your small business is going to achieve what you want it to achieve, it has to be fit. Not necessarily lean and mean, but strong and healthy enough to run efficiently and tackle new challenges.

That's what this Small Business Makeover series is all about; getting your small business into shape so it can be successful. Because business success doesn't just happen; business success has to be worked at and prepared for.

The Small Business Makeover consists of a "workout" each week which focuses on increasing your business success by improving a particular aspect of your business. The topics covered are business planning, business finances, customer service, information technology management and small business marketing.

So why not sign up and start increasing your business success? You will receive the first lesson as soon as you sign up, and a new lesson each week.

There are a few things you should be aware of before you sign up for this class:

  • Enter your email address carefully. If you make a mistake, I'll get a "bounced" email, and I will have no way to let you know.
  • Due to the amount of email I receive, I cannot personally reply to "anti-spam" measures you or your ISP may use. So if you're using something that blocks email until a "real person" sends it, you'll need to turn it off to receive the class, OR include sbinfocanada.guide@about.com in your "approved" email list.
  • If you want to move ahead or review a past lesson, click on the "Missed Lessons" link at the bottom of each lesson, and select the lesson(s) that you want mailed immediately.

If you have questions as you work through the course, I encourage you to post them to the Small Business: Canada Forum. You'll find there are many other small business people who share your concerns - and are willing to give support and advice.
