Charting a path for your business – the first 5 years
Only a small number of businesses succeed in the first few years. Companies which achieve the greatest success in the long-term share common traits. Kent Lewis, President & Founder of Formic Media, will take you step-by-step through successful traits for any business, from inception through year 5. He has distilled his key insights into relatively simple but powerful concepts: The 3 Fs for year 1, 5 Ws for years 2-3, 7 Ps years 3-4 and Mentoring tips for years 4-5. Each stage can start early or last well beyond the suggested timeframe, but each should be tackled and mastered to maximize long-term success. Lewis is the founder of 2 companies and 2 non-profits and co-founder of 2 companies and non-profits, and currently sits on half a dozen boards locally.
