On Thursday, Oct. 24,6-9pm, the SBDC staff, along with a panel featuring some of Lincoln County’s most innovative business owners, will ask a few questions of their own. You’re invited to participate, to answer – or just to listen in.
Entitled “Re-Inventing Your Business: Three Keys to Business Success,” the workshop will address theses three questions, and likely many others.
* Are you doing something meaningful? When an individual has a grand purpose or a company has shared values, they can do wonders. Confusion at the top, though, leads to confusion in the ranks. Articulating, and then living, a mission is the first key element to personal and business success.
* Are you making a profit?
* Are you building wealth? In the business world, you can do three things with profits. You can re-invest in your business, you can consume your profits or you can pay back loans for past investments or consumption.
Building success means doing meaningful things and adding real value to your onw and other people’s lives. Being profitable is the means of building personal and societal wealth.
Invited panelists include Rhonda Fry of Oceana Foods Co-Op, Wil Black of Advanced Research Systems, Stephanie Brown, True Cut Engraving and Rob Thompson of Thompson Sanitary
The workshop will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 at the Newport campus of Oregon Coast Community College, at 400 SE College Way in South Beach. For more information, visit www.oregoncoastbusiness.com or call Ron Spisso at 541-487-4855.
