Business can be like gardens. Tough to start, they take maintenance, and are full of surprises…but they’re also very rewarding when they grow.
Every business is different, and every entrepreneur has their own vision of success. But there are basic tenants on the road to “making it” that are valuable to learn. And there are piles of resources for startups on how to make their business blossom. In fact, a recent report by IBIS World shows that 46,700 firms provide coaching for business in the U.S. alone.
The only question is…where to start?
Join us this Friday, March 11 between 1-2 p.m., for a Biz503 episode of the Stages of Business. We’ll cover the ways a business can blossom from a small garage startup to a multi-employee enterprise. Our hosts, Mark Grimes of NedSpace and Cindy Tortorici of The Link will guide a discussion with successful Portland-based business leaders as they give advice on how to step up your business game.
Our guest this week include:
Dr. Sean Harry, expert on stages of business development and a leader at Portland Community College’s SBDC.
Shobi Dahl, ex-CEO of Dave’s Killer Bread
Andy Giegerich, digital managing editor at Portland Business Journal
Bob Kerry, CFO and co-owner at Grand Central Bakery
