Ingenuity, Creativity, and Diligence - Success Achieved!TM
BCA understands what it takes to make a small business successful. When we coined the phrase, Success follows diligence, it stuck! More than ever entrepreneurialism offers creative, adventurous people with good ideas an opportunity to soar.
As good as your idea may be it's an idea that must be grounded in sound business practice to be profitable. This means building and maintaining strategic alliances with peers and resource organizations that support your efforts. It also means organized and timely planning that anticipates and structures growth. There is nothing as professionally fulfilling as creating your own enterprise. Business creation must go hand in hand with resource cultivation and planning to be a sustainable and profitable enterprise.
If your enterprise is for-profit or nonprofit the application of sound business practices applies equally. The return on your investment of time, energy, and money is significantly increased by your capacity to understand and apply these practices.
