  • The Hidden Revenue Streams in Your Business That Are Keeping Your From Earning What You Want

    Jean Kuhn, CEO, JeanKuhn.com

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Business

    Certified Master Speaker and Marketing Maven, Jean Kuhn, knows your local small business owners are not making enough money. Let’s help them. Look around, how many of your local businesses have closed their doors in the past 5 years? MORE >

    Small Business Owners (SBOs) get so caught up in the daily grind of running their business, taking care of customers, employees, worrying about payroll, and paying the bills, they don’t have time to figure out how easy it can be to increase their income. I know it’s true, because it was true for me when I first became self-employed and it took me 17 years to figure it out.

    Every business owner has revenue streams in their business they have either forgotten about, don’t see, or don’t have the time to implement. Countless (SBOs) close their businesses because they don’t make enough money. While I can't see dead people, I can see revenue potential, it's my "sixth sense.“

    What if I could show your SBOs where they are losing money in their business?

    What if I could show your SBOs the revenue stream(s) they can’t see in their business?

    When a SBO thrives and makes more money, they put it back into the local economy, they create jobs, and the local government gains more tax dollars. A true, win/win.
