Helping you navigate which type of entity is best for you and your business. After you’ve dreamt up your idea you may start daydreaming about ways to build revenue. You may feel passionate about making a difference in your community and improving people’s lives; but you also need to figure out how to put food on the table and support your family. Is your idea something that could be considered a “cause” that would qualify for grants and charitable giving? We will discuss many of the pros and cons of being a 501 3 versus an LLC and help you answer important questions around your comfort in being accountable to others, “owning” your own idea, working for yourself, and deferred gratification (and profit) versus immediate financial gain.

WEEKLY, Tuesdays,”Topical Tuesdays,” at The Iowa Center for Economic Success: 12:00 – 1:00 PM, 8345 University Blvd., Suite F, Clive. “UNDERSTANDING YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE,” by Tamara Kenworthy, founder of On Point Strategies, has over 30 years of marketing and research expertise. Is your marketing plan focused on your target audience(s)? Are you listening to your customers? Many, if not most, businesses make the #1 mistake of not listening to or understanding the needs and wants of their customers. Join us for this Topical Tuesday to gain clarity on why marketing planning and market research should go hand-in-hand, and how it doesn’t need to be a foreign language for you – or break your budget. Tamara will walk through the key components of a solid marketing plan and why marketing research is so important. Tamara will share a range of research methodologies and how they fit into the plan. Then she’ll take a deep dive highlighting some research scenarios to make the research process come to life – as well as some tips on survey design. You’ll gain a renewed appreciation for research at any budget level. You’ll think differently about “voice of the customer” when you leave this presentation, which will help you own your business plan and grow your business.
