Elevate Your Business Value Workshop

Elevate Your Business Value: Create a Blueprint for Building, Selling and Personal Freedom Workshop

The Pictou County Partnership is hosting a workshop for entrepreneurs on Tuesday, February 6th from 9AM to 5PM.  Crafted for entrepreneurs who are building businesses that may some day be sold to family, employees or a third party, this workshop will be practical, interactive, and motivating.

Elevate Your Business Value: Create a Blueprint for Building, Selling and Personal Freedom is a full day workshop that will be facilitated by Wendy Brookhouse, Founder and Chief Strategist of Black Star Wealth

Wendy has been assisting Business Owners in building their wealth – and that includes the value of their business – for almost two decades. 

From this workshop, attendees will learn: 

  • How to recognize when you've fallen into The Owner's Trap and the steps to take to pull yourself out; 
  • The three attributes of a scalable business model; 
  • The eight factors that drive the value of your business; 
  • The one kind of revenue that can triple the value of your business; 
  • The six forms of sustainable recurring revenue; 
  • The two essential elements of your marketing plan you need to avoid commoditization and costly price wars; 
  • The one question you need to ask your customers to predict the likelihood that they will buy again in the future and refer you to others.
