RX for Business

Work Force Lake is offering Lake County businesses a new program; Rx for Business. The program is FREE to qualified Lake County businesses that agree to complete the full program. The program is designed to help business owner(s) climb the ladder of success.
Running and growing a small business is not an easy task. At times the person running the business can feel confused, frustrated or even overwhelmed trying to stabilize and grow their business. It is virtually impossible for one person to learn everything there is to know about running a business and also do everything needed to grow the business through every stage of the businesses life cycle.
The Rx for Business program is designed to help businesses understand where they are, where they want to go and how to get there. We review your business status, business plan and goals, assess the businesses strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats, financial condition, products and/or services, market and current challenges facing the business.
Based on an initial meeting reviewing the business status and goals a Scope of Work is prepared as a guide to complete the program.
Upon completion of the Rx for business program a business can obtain ongoing free Business Adviser services from the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for ongoing support for growing their business.
All services will be provided at the Work Force Lake Small Business Center in Lakeport, CA.
This offer is limited to 8 businesses. If this is of interest to you, you need to contact us today.
