This unique workshop is not offered anywhere else. It is designed to help entrepreneurs move through the challenging “Business Plan” phase of starting a business. It is ideal for folks that already have an idea to start their business and want to do it the right way. It is also a great refresher for owners of a business who may have gotten off on the wrong foot! This workshop will cover the first two (2) phases of the 5-phase startup process. One of the innovations developed by the instructor, Rick Feltenberger, is the KansasKanvas™. This innovation guides attendees through the process of identifying the ideal customer, determining market size, and much more. We also provide the innovative LivePlan business plan template, known for helping thousands of people complete a bankable business plan.
