We all have a million ideas, but only a few entrepreneurs successfully turn ideas into millions.

What’s the trick?

Here’s a hint – it takes a lot of work. Assuming that you’ve gone through the steps of validating your business concept, there’s still a long road between notes on a napkin and a profitable venture.

Early stage business building is a jigsaw of essential parts. There’s financial modeling, raising capital, marketing planning, networking, research and much more on the table. Not to mention the other, more elusive aspects of starting down the entrepreneurial track, such as work-life balance, tracking success, and holding yourself accountable.

Want to learn how to sift through these concepts and gain the basic tools you need to turn your idea into a thriving business?

Join us Friday, April 7th between 1-2 p.m. on 99.1 FM/prp.fm for our live broadcast of Biz503: From Idea to Business Plan
