How do "you" measure progress?

It's really easy to tell if you're making progress when you have output you can weigh, count or measure. 

And it's increasing in terms of new clients gained, for instance. 

Or projects completed by your team. 

Or "thank you" calls received. 

Or smiles produced by your staff.

Or referrals made by your existing customers.

Keeping score is an easy way to tell when you're winning.

Like revenues generated. 

Or promotions received. 

What's your way of measuring progress? 

Don't have one? 

Start one!

Join us for breakfast any  Wednesday  and share your way of measuring progress or to learn one that will work for you!

Services Cooperative Association
Market Expansion ~ Business Development
Entrepreneurial Education ~ Professional Growth
Since 1983!
  A not-for-profit cooperative association of independent businesses, founded from an economic development research project on the
importance of small business development conducted by the
 Houston Chamber of Commerce in the late 1970's.

With our first Co-Op meeting held March 14, 1983, to date we've worked with 65,637
 people, generating 44,981 tips, leads, referrals and items of new business, generating revenues exceeding one billion dollars, founded the Entrepreneurial Development Center - Houston's first and Texas' oldest small business incubator and co-working space, First Houston Small Business Seed Capital Fund - literally the first small business seed capital fund in Houston, the Womens Business Center - first business incubator for women business owners in the country with residency space and the Virtual Business Center - the first remote business incubator in the world - all totally without public funding, grants, gifts, donations or contributions. 

Co-Op companies have won virtually every award for business growth in Houston, some nationally and some even internationally.
 
Our Entrepreneurial Research Division conclusively demonstrated "entrepreneurship" could be taught in a classroom environment, resulting in colleges and universities, globally,
commencing entrepreneurial courses.

Among our projects for 2020:
We're asking our government to please stop tax-payer
funding of  those Small Business Development Centers across
the U.S. which 
knowingly compete with tax-paying businesses.
Should you have a business that has been negatively impacted by
SBDC competition let us know.
