Taking Your Business Idea from Concept to Reality

How do I take an idea to a realistic business concept? Coming up with ideas is the easy part; executing the idea is the hard part! Most entrepreneurs focus more on the ideas and less on how to organize for action.
This two part series seminar includes two sessions on consecutive weeks. The first session is intended to stimulate your ideas into business actions.

Learn to become a business thinker by examining and developing an action plan document.

1) Impact assessments

3) Map each stage
4) Fire bullets
5) Make a bet
6) Call possible customers
7) Solicit constructive critiques
8) Market research
9) Data gathering and
10) Valued believers.

The second part, the following week, is an open panel discussion of selected summaries, also intended to stimulate your business thinking.

You will learn to sell your idea professionally, enthusiastically and concisely.
