At the latest Business Education Series workshop, entrepreneurs and local business professionals learned how to surpass their sales barriers by learning how to “Break the Million Dollar Barrier.” Held at the Lansing Chamber of Commerce, attendees learned about the critical internal changes needed to position their company for major sales and profit growth. Mike Gay, Business Growth Specialist with the Michigan Small Business Development Center, presented the 60-minute workshop. Key takeaways included focusing on owning a business, not a job and understanding that the technical work is not the same as understanding business.
“Hitting a wall is inevitable,” stated Gay. “Every time you hit a wall, you need a new objective.”
The workshop was geared for businesses with employees and sales over $500,000 per year. If you would like more information on the presentation or have questions regarding how your business can surpass your sales hurdles, contact the Michigan Small Business Development Center.
