You will define the Value Proposition Statement the infrastructure, customers, and finances required for your business.

Coaching to the Business Plan: Working from a formal statement of business goals, identified market segment and how you will deliver your product/service. Most importantly describes the steps need to plan and that qualifies if serving the market is profitable. It will also contain tangible objectives on what is required for the team to attain the set goals.

  • Eric is a veritable genius when it comes to coaching entrepreneurs in the startup phase. My consulting business is in its infancy and my experience in the private sector is limited. Eric helped me to take stalk of my experience, qualifications, and interests and then clarify my niche. He also provided me with some excellent tips, tricks, and strategies for successfully growing my business and avoiding common pitfalls. I am beyond grateful and highly recommend Eric and My Byward Office.
