Aus (PRWEB) July 15, 2006 –
Streets of Business (http://www.streetsofbusiness.com), is starting a revolution by helping small business owners understand and drive their business to bigger and better things.
Founded by former top business executives, Streets of Business takes away the mysteries of how large companies run their business and provides small business techniques and steps to maximize profitability and long term success.
With a growing trend towards high failure rates in small business and new start ups, in some cases up to 70% within 12 months, small-business owners are now demanding expert skills and information to ensure their survival and prosperity.
As competition and globalization continues to put enormous pressure on small-business, there is increasing demand being placed on the owner to be profitable as well as maintaining their customer base. Against the bottomless money pit of large companies, the small business owner is confronting a very large and formidable competition.
These pressures are also being felt by accountants and business advisors. The problem is that professionals now have even less time to assist small business as they battle with taxation and compliance deadlines.
Recently a number of former executives came together to discuss ways to assist small business. Rather than trying to manage a small client base, they decided to write simple and easy to use business programs for the small-business owner.
The beginning of Streets of Business...
Using their extensive knowledge and business experience, the founders identified the areas of a business that a small-business owner should concentrate on to help improve profits, customer satisfaction and detection and early warning signs of imminent business problems.
The programs have been well priced to make all programs affordable. The company guarantees that the small business owner will make substantial savings and avoid costly consultants.
The philosophy is simple - the small business owner takes much risk to succeed and should have access to affordable tools and programs.
You would spend 100 times more engaging a consultant and you could receive similar benefits for a fraction of the price.
One of their programs “Simple Strategy” deals with the problems of writing and implementing a business plan. Their experience shows that a small-business owner will either not prepare a business plan or they will seek professional advice.
Simple Strategy trains small business to understand and prepare a roadmap otherwise it's no use preparing a business and marketing plans.
If you don't understand the reasons for preparing these plans, most likely you will find greater difficulty achieving your goals.
The program allows the small business owners to train themselves and prepare the most important things for a business.
If a business plan cannot “drive” the business, chances are that the small business owner will run into problems.
The Simple Strategy program can be completed in 2 days and the owner then has a road map.
Their experience have found that a business plan is completed 65% quicker after finishing the strategy program.
Another program, Business Health, allows small business to complete a health checklist on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis providing valuable signs to potential problems as well as opportunities. For example, having early warning systems can help anticipate cash flow problems.
All programs are best completed by the owner and not left in the hands of other people. The company believes that the ultimate responsibility and risk is borne by the owner, so it makes perfect sense that the owner should complete the exercises.
Streets if Business has found that owners can save thousands of dollars using these programs.
