Charles Fred: Can Your Stakeholders Endure a Long Journey?

September 28, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 10:50 am

Charles Fred, TrueSpace

Can your stakeholders endure a long journey?

Consider this immutable fact: Only 3% of all firms operating in the U.S. eventually reach $10 million in sales.

Most will take an average of 12 years to reach the $10 million threshold.

Few entrepreneurs have prepared their stakeholders for this extended journey. But there are steps you can take to prepare your team for this long term goal.

This discussion is to share information from a study conducted by TrueSpace and Gallup of 2500 entrepreneurs. Come and learn what other business builder are doing to address this challenge.
