Pick Optimism over Euphoria

On the whole, 2017 is shaping up as an encouraging time for business. Many owners think, or at least hope, that having a new administration in Washington will mean fewer regulations, more tax breaks and a friendlier climate for expansion.  There’s a renewed sense of confidence and, along with it, a greater willingness to take entrepreneurial risks.

Optimism is like oxygen for business owners. Without it, they wouldn’t be motivated to invest in capital equipment or to pursue new markets. It’s when optimism begins to shade into euphoria that a dose of reality is called for.

Topics covered include:

  • Administration Changes Effect On Our Industry
  • Optimism vs. Euphoria: Choose Carefully
  • How Long Until The Next Recession
  • Building Long Term Value Into Your Business
  • What Is My Business Worth

A box lunch will be served during the presentation. All attendees will be entered into a drawing for a $100 restaurant gift card.
