*Location Changes - The 'Business Life-Cycle Stages' session has been moved to Start Here on the lower level of the Old Lex Mercantile, 113 West Nelson Street.

All businesses experience common problems at similar stages in their development.

Just as parenting strategies that work for your toddler cannot be applied to your teenager, management strategies for your small business change as it evolves through predictable growth stages throughout its life. Learn the stages and how key success factors for each of the stages change.

Prepare for the focuses and challenges you will need to succeed in your current business stage and in those to come.

Business Smarts-Lexington is a series of six workshops designed to guide you through an assessment of your business’ status, and to identify business strengths and weaknesses, plan for, and implement improvement strategies. The series is brought to you by the SV SBDC, Main Street Lexington, and the Chamber of Commerce Serving Lexington, Rockbridge County, and Buena Vista.
