Business Planning Webinar


Business planning sounds so boring, but it is important - some would say critical - to the success of businesses. This webinar will be inspirational, addressing the topic of life planning and how it overlaps with business planning. As the title of our webinar suggests, we cannot achieve in our lives without taking action. Action is the spark we need to reach self-reliance through entrepreneurship and business.


Join us for the first in a series of webinars on Thursday, March 25th at 6pm on Facebook Live at RiverworksMKE, where we work with entrepreneurs and start-ups to help them craft their vision and achieve their goals. This event will be interactive; send us your questions, download templates and documents from our website, and network with other entrepreneurs!
