Module 3 Funding

Funding will find you if you have developed

a better "mousetrap" ie.  product or service

Funding is rarely the reason businesses do

not succeed.   Not having an intimate knowledge

of the basic transaction and not having revenue

certainty are.

Module 4 Outside the Box

When considering your customers environment

it is sometimes helpful to

"drive with the windows down"

Also try to remember, if a man wants a

blue suit "turn on the blue light!"

The customer is always right when the

customer "Pays" to be right. You want

to avoid "high maintenance - low pay"

customers. Customers can be fired,

just raise your rates until they find

another provider.

Module 5 Manage Resources

1. Cash Flow Positive

2. Be Legal Be Kind

3. Steward Style Leadership

4. Be Highly Reliable & Cost Effective
