Episode Description

Moving Forward

Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Moving Forward is a relevant, real world current resource for today’s business owner, entrepreneur and executive. There are simple core reasons why 75% of US small businesses fail in the first three years, why 70% of US women-owned businesses make less than 50K, why many mid-sized companies stagnate, and why multinational corporations are watching revenues and expansion of market share tighten. The 21st century has introduced new norms and resources that are of immense value to businesses and their bottom line. Yet, in business we require relevance, not just more information. We need the true stories of what works and what does not work. Moving Forward delivers. It provides innovation and useful information with today’s resources. You’ll discover experiences, perspectives and questions that make all the difference for growth, profitability and value.
