Cary, NC, May 28, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Janice Russell, CPO-CD, President of Minding Your Matters Organizing® spoke at this month’s Chix in Business meeting addressing business owners who are interested in growing their business. Her seminar was entitled Zero to Six in Five, and shared her expertise as a veteran service-based business owner who grew her professional services company to six-figures within five years without having any previous business ownership experience. Some professionals start their business and experience success at first, and then wonder what happened in year two or three when the number of clients starts to decline. Others simply decide on a company name, create business cards, and expect business to come in. In today’s economic climate these approaches to business will not work, and Russell provided alternatives.
Russell shared productive ways to spend time and money in order to enjoy a prosperous business and she pointed out non-productive uses of time and money to be eliminated from business practice in order to be profitable. Attendees were encouraged to establish an action-oriented goal to grow their business and determine a person, product, or company to leverage in order to extend business results. Russell explained that many business owners don’t understand how leveraging from others rather than reinventing the wheel extends results and can make a company profitable.
“True to Janice’s expertise in organizing, she presented a clear picture of what it takes to succeed as a business owner,” said Stefanie Zizzo, a Career and Life Coach who attended Russell’s seminar. She added that, “Janice made it real by injecting personal experience and had us all believing it is possible for us to achieve the same success! Both new and seasoned business owners found value in her presentation!”
