  • Evaluating a business idea to determine whether it can be viably launched into a business?
  • Looking for new, strategic focus and direction of the business you're leading?
  • Contemplating self-employment as a new career option?


Defining your vision- leads you through determining whether a business idea is a feasible business opportunity. You will examine your idea from every angle and write a feasibility plan, which will help you decide if the business is a "go" or a "no go" before spending too much time or money.
