The Archdiocese has not forgotten the power and peace born of praying together. Cardinal Cupich invites all people of good will, including civic, education and religious leaders from across the city to join him for a Walk for Peace through Englewood on Good Friday, April 14.

Budgeting is such a dirty word. But what if you could reimagine it as a “strategic spending plan” which gave your business the competitive edge it needed to succeed in today’s marketplace? With companies and governments going without a budget, you’ll be surprised at how learning to plan for your financial future month or year will dramatically improve your odds at business success. This workshop begins with an overview of the importance of paying yourself first in your business. We review the 4 core rules for budgeting, including “Give Every Dollar a Job” “Roll with the Punches” “Save for a Rainy Day” and “Live on Last Month’s Income”. We also determine what each business owner should be paying themselves as they start their business, even if they are just getting started. We review several budgeting softwares, and demo one in particular which works for planning out the business (and your personal) financial future.

How to Cut Through the Marketing Noise "Beat Your Competition and Grow Your Business."

An in-depth introduction to branding for small business owners, startups and entrepreneurs, full of ready-to-apply takeaways.

Branding is often misunderstood in the small business world and regarded as something that only the big companies can afford. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The reality is, most small businesses fail because they don’t have a strong brand (or don’t have a brand at all). Branding is more important than ever but now that consumers are both marketing-savvy and in control of the relationship, what constitutes effective branding has changed.

Here’s my educated guess. When you ventured out to start your new business, nobody handed you a fat pension or a 401(k). Preparing for a peaceful, prosperous retirement is in YOUR hands, for better or worse! Take control of your own financial future – attend this workshop to learn over 20+ retirement programs out there for you and your employees. Build up your own nest egg, and attract and retain key employees!

This workshop brings a comprehensive look into the retirement landscape available for business owners. Which plan is best suited for you? Given the paltry savings rate of most Americans, the rising cost of living and medical care, and the squeeze the middle class is feeling, it is essential to pick a savings and investing strategy that fits the needs of each business owner.

Normally an established entity creates a Strategic Growth Plan annually, to guide its Management Team toward achieving its Growth Objectives. Inherent in its Growth Plan is a detailed market assessment of the entity’s position and any market segment they are considering entering. To determine which market segment offers the most favorable growth prospect, entry via internal penetration with a new/improved product/service or via acquisition, must be evaluated. Within each market segment being considered, an evaluation of potential customers’ needs and the strengths/weaknesses of each competitor are required. If acquisition is the chosen entry mode, the willingness of each prospect to being acquired, must be then be determined.
