Successful Entrepreneurs Prefer Scaling to Failing

Presenter:  Rita Ricks, Business Coach, and Author

  • Create a compelling vision statement of the future they see for their company

  • Develop the mission to show how they will get to their vision

  • Extract their elevator pitch from their mission

  • Name the values which determine the culture of their company

Attendees will:

  • Shift their thinking to see the BIG picture
