Wake Up, Santa Cruz

Join Mark Hoover for a morning wake up meeting where you'll learn how to:

  • Have an inspiring, crystal clear vision that pops you out of bed in the morning
  • Recognize and tear down the obstacles to fulfilling your vision
  • Understand what kind of organization you are- not understanding this is the undoing of small businesses
  • Get your attention and energy focused on what matters most; stop wasting your resources on what doesn’t matter
  • Have a clear understanding of a few numbers that make the biggest difference
  • Have a plan- It should be super-simple but a well thought out plan
  • Only employ tactics to build your business that make sense
