In addition, this program offers a tailor made schedule for its members. The program is cohort based with each cohort running 9 weeks. If you are excited about the growth potential of your business and ready to put in time for development, this is the program for you.
1. Business Coaching and Mentorship
Imagine having a fully dedicated expert in your corner. Someone who can help you put things in perspective, find different approaches to new challenges, and is always a champion for you. Nest will pair you with the business professionals you need to execute your dream at a high level.
2. Financial Literacy
Having financial well-being means having a sense of control over your day to day finances. It means having the financial freedom to make the best life choices for yourself. To manage your finances, an effective and thorough understanding of financial literacy is crucial.
3. Business Planning
A good business plan guides you through each stage of starting and managing your business. You’ll use your business plan as a roadmap for how to structure, run, and grow your new business. It’s a way to think through the key elements of your business. Business plans can help you get funding or bring on new business partners. Investors want to feel confident they’ll see a return on their investment.
Marketing as it was originally intended, in its fullest, truest, and greatest form, is more important today than ever before. The world is awash in innovative products, services, technologies, solutions, business models, etc. today. These new offerings must be brought to market and commercialized in order to generate revenue and profit. Innovation alone cannot sustain a company; it must be paired with marketing.
5. Health and Wellness
Health and wellness is the foundation of not only business but life as well. Without a solid foundation in this area everything else around it could crumble. The success of your business is immensely dependent upon your health.
