    May 25, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    1 Capitol Mall Suite 700, Sacramento, CA 95814, USA

    Presented by Linda Bigler: 

    One day every three months – your chance to step out of the business and get focused. We’ll work with you to map out a winning game plan for the next 90 days. Plus, with practical workshops and expert training, you and your team will get back to your business with clear direction and new tools to achieve your goals faster. 

    Create Momentum 
    By the end of this high energy afternoon, you will have a clear picture of where your business will be in 90 days time and a step by step plan to get you there. Using this roadmap, you and your coach will take your business from where you are to where you want to be. 

    Bullet Proof Strategies 
    You’ll hear it straight from the trenches – real business owners sharing their top money-making tactics from the last 90 days. Listen hard. Take notes. Then adopt & adapt to get them working for you. 

    Transform Your Business 
    You’ll learn how the world’s most successful businesses plan their on-going success – and then you will build these same principles into your own business (regardless of size) to create your own personalized 90-Day Plan step-by-step. Then, crucially, you will learn how to implement your new skills and systems daily to achieve real results. 

    Great Action Means Great Results 
    You’ll walk away with: 
    • Energy, vision and focus for the next 90 days in your business. 
    • Take home strategies to build your profits right away.
