South Jersey Entrepreneurs Council
The members of the South Jersey Entrepreneurs Council have all achieved significant success. The group represents in excess of $21 million in total revenue, with more than 160 employees. This is a sampling of challenges recently discussed:
- How do I scale my business while maintaining a “small company” feel?
- How do I address both competitors within the professional community as well as “Senior Specialists” within the company in support of our growth, so we remain fiscally sound?
- How will the FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) affect our businesses? How do we best plan for Federal Guidelines for Healthcare?
- How do we identify, hire, and retain qualified personnel on an ongoing basis?
- How do we restructure, replace, or maintain a nonreciprocal strategic partnership?
- How do we best manage the cultural environment within the organization while dealing with emotions and expectations of personnel?
- Succession planning – How do we best identify a number two within our organization for both current security and stability as well as future flexibility?
- How should we focus on long-term sustainable operational growth while maintaining marketing efforts used to build the practice?
- Do we grow our business organically or inorganically? Do we continue to grow through client acquisition and relationship building on our own cash, or look for capitalization to accelerate growth?
