Eat Less Ramen Noodle in 2020! (Maui)

Event Details

RSVP closes November 21, 2019 (RSVP with full name)
Service, retail and/or manufacturing? Most startups fail for a variety of reasons, but one is far more common than others: running out of money. It doesn’t matter how good your idea might be – if you run out of money, you hit a brick wall.
The end of 2019 is almost here… Is your business happening the way you dreamt? If not quite yet, this seminar is for you, to help you grow and fine-tune your startup, micro or small business and find the success you dreamed of in 2020.
A special free event to celebrate the 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Week (G.E.W) organized by the Hawai'i Technology Development Corporation (HTDC), Innovate Hawai'i (IH), Maui Research & Technology Center (MRTC) in collaboration with Maui Business Brainstormers (MBB).
No matter what type or size of business you run, you always need to know the answers to these basic questions: 1) Who owes me money? 2) To whom do I owe money? 3) How much money do I have in the bank?
Building a company from the ground up requires a lot of hard work and focus to avoid mistakes that can lead to failure. Understanding a core set of topics can position you for success, and give you an edge against the competition. As the money starts flowing in, you’ll remember why you love your business!
Topics covered by this seminar: 1. How to keep the cash flowing green 2. When inventory management matters to your business 3. Taxes, taxes, taxes - pay business taxes! 4. How to track and monitor spending (if you are only one or two persons in the business or have multiple jobs) 5. How to make fixed expenses effective and efficient, supporting the growth plan for your business 6. Customer, Customer, Customer – think customer acquisition and don’t forget existing customers 7. How to log your time and how you pay yourself (you can’t eat ramen noodles forever) 8. How to prepare your optimism for the worst 9. Types of financial goals that entrepreneurs, micro and small businesses should consider.
