Tough times are no excuse…

The economy is bad.  It’s not getting better as quickly as we’d like.  Some might throw up their hands and give up.  But most of the business owners I know are hunkering down instead.  The smartest ones are looking for new ideas, finding ways to stay in touch with customers, and learning better ways to lead their companies.

This is the time in our business’s lives that we need to take inventory of our own strengths and challenges, and take steps to address both.  What area of business are you weakest in?  Do you need a better understanding of your numbers?  Do your sales techniques need some work?  Maybe hiring and managing employees is a struggle for you.  Whatever your challenge, there are resources available to help you overcome it — or at least mitigate it.

The Altman Initiative Group’s “Business Success Institute” focuses on helping business owners increase their skills and knowledge so they can run their businesses better.  We inspire owners to work “ON” their businesses instead of just “IN” them — as the E-Myth reminds us.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the day to day and miss out on opportunities that are right on front of us.  BSI helps you step back and think. 

There are other business groups that offer good content as well.  Maybe it’s time you took advantage of some of these opportunities to learn, grow and share with other business owners.

As one of my favorite sayings goes, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”   If you’d like to “get going” with Business Success Institute, check out our website at or call me, Denise Altman, at 704-315-9090.

  1. I’ve been a number of networking and mastermind groups in my 8 years in business. I’ve only stuck with 3 long-term and BSI is one of them. I’ve been a member for 3 years and will continue to renew my membership. The topics are excellent, the membership is solid, and the networking is very useful.
