Going from the first thought to first sale in your first or next new business.
Based on solid research and John Wren's experience as entrepreneur and consultant. Businesses just don't start the way the Small Business Administration says they should start.
John Wren calls himself a recovering MBA because "much of what I learned in graduate business school is deadly for the person who is going from first thought to first sale."
Wren has discovered that market research and careful strategic planning just are NOT the way successful business start. His findings have been confirmed by the research of Dr. Amar Bhide www.bhide.net.
"If market research and formal planning worked as well as the SBA thinks they do, we'd have a planned economy, not a market economy," says Wren.
Wren has started several businesses himself and has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs in his consulting work and the Denver IDEA Cafe, a startup workshop that meets weekly, and Franklin Circle business peer advisory groups.
John Wren says:
Since 1979, I help people start and grow their business, and I help individuals find their next great job in the direction of their dream.
Denver IDEA Cafe http://meetup.com/Denver-IDEA-Cafe the 2nd & 4th Fridays each month, free and open to everyone starting a new career, new project or campaign and I organize and facilitate Franklin Circle business peer advisory groups. http://www.JohnWren.com
