Business Plan Basics: How to Set Goals and Take Action

Join us in our final In the Know Business Presentation, with Hilary Halstead Scott! Please make yourself a She's the Boss cocktail (recipe delivered upon registration) and wear a piece of Power Jewelry for the pre-presentation Mix & Mingle!

Business Plan Basics:
Having a solid business plan prepared for your jewelry company is crucial to your success. This session will focus on helping small business owners create a more robust jewelry business plan to use when applying for loans or for strategic planning to help you successfully build your business. We have broken down the business planning process into 12 steps. The Jewelry Business Plan Toolkit is an interactive guide that walks you through the whole process with everything you need to create your jewelry business plan in one place.
