Listening to Your Business: Vision, Strategy, and Social Media Workshop for Entrepreneurs

4-Hour Workshop, March 31, 2010

5-9 pm

Empire State Building

The day-to-day responsibilities of running your own business leave little time to focus on long-term vision, goals, and strategies. You’re so busy running around, you’re not listening to your clients, potential customers, or to yourself: Why did you start your business to begin with?

The web allows you to connect more easily than ever with people in your niche, to listen to what your clients want, to hear what people are saying about YOU. Chances are you’re not taking advantage of the potential.

Your business is as solid as your relationships. And relationships are based on listening. You know what else requires listening? Social Media. What is your intention? What do you need to grow your business by $25,000 next month? Who do you need to meet? What should that conversation look like? What relationship can you develop?

In this workshop, you will:

  • examine your business: what’s working? what isn’t?
  • create a vision for 2010
  • learn how to listen online to build more connected relationships.
  • learn how to build stronger relationships using social media to build a stronger business
  • identify resources to reach your goals
  • have a detailed roadmap to success

Is your business worth the investment?

Two months after Danielle’s presentation to Baruch Business and Professional Women, people are still coming up to me saying what a fantastic event it was and how much enthusiasm and information they gained. Danielle addressed a group of women at various stages in their businesses. All of the attendees were engaged and all walked away with new found insights into their ultimate “vision” for their businesses and lives. - Stacie Urbach, Membership Director, Barnard Business and Professional Women
