We are excited to share with you STRATEGIC THINKING from the three Volume Set of the BUSINESS BLUEPRINT FOR SUCCESS. In this book, you will be immersed into 13 chapters of 120 chapters that contain hundereds of lesson plans and business development modules to move you and your business to higher levels of business success. Each of these 13 chapters were developed over the last 25 years of studying and implementing business success concepts that work! Each month, we update many of our Business Development Lesson Plans… which is why this BOOK is in a spiral bound binder, so that you can insert the updated lesson plans as they are released for more powerful/current strategies!
In this Strategic Thinking, we will start with teaching you the strategies of developing your Strategic Thinking… and creating your map to “Success” with your “Nexus” and “Implementation” clearly established for your company. We will then discuss with you how your “Identity”, “Image” and “Branding” will be three of the many foundations stones you will need to achieve higher levels of financial success. You will also learn how to conduct the “Appearance” you need to understand your “Markets” so that you can develop your “Marketing” and minimize your “Problems” in competing within your Target Market. You will learn how your understanding of the “Time”, “Money”, “Expansion” and “Meetings” will let you know everything you need to know about your customers and clients.
