Each business is unique with different products and services, owners, staff, target market, branding, geographical locations, languages, cultures, and more.

The stage your business is in is also unique to your business. We want to help you at all stages of your business from planning to promotion to scaling and succession planning. We offer a variety of services, including Business Networking Events in Toronto, the GTA and online. These events are also called, “Entrepreneur Networking Events.” We also offer Business Networking Groups, also called “Referral Groups,” and “Referral Networking Groups;” along with Toronto Business Coaching; Sales Training; Public Speaking Training; Guest Speaker opportunities; Exhibitor booths and Website Development and SEO services.

Business Networking is one of the best ways to grow your business because it gives potential clients and referral partners the opportunity to get to know you and assess your credibility, instead of them just seeing you as a face and a  name on your online marketing platforms.

As you build relationships and provide great products and services, those in your network will start referring their contacts to you. We’ve all heard the saying, “It’s not what you know, but, who you know.” In business the second half is very true.

The two ways consumers will look for products and services are by searching online and asking those they know for a recommendation. If your network is small, not many people know you, therefore you will get much fewer recommendations than people with larger networks. That’s why it’s so important to keep meeting new people to grow your network.

The first half of that saying is not correct though in terms of the long-term sustainability of your business, as if you don’t know what you are doing and therefore give poor service or low quality products, your clients will share those negative experiences with those they know and not only will you cease to receive referrals, but, you may get a reputation that also limits your new client acquisition.

So, know your products and services thoroughly, provide the highest quality, then and come out to our business networking events in Toronto and the GTA and join one of our referral groups as we would be happy to promote your business and connect you with potential clients and referral partners.

This is an exciting stage when you are full of energy and excitement and look forward to your entrepreneurial journey.

Having a great business idea that will make consumers want to buy from you is key! To help you, we’ve compiled and categorized several lists of business ideas to help you out.

Even if you already have an idea of what you want to do, it’s a good idea to see what the other options exist to get your creative juices flowing and solidify your chosen path or modify your original idea.

We can help you decide what type of business is right for you:

Are you in the PLANNING stage?

Excellent! This is a fun business stage, which is also extremely essential, as this is when you are building the foundation for your business on which it can grow, diversify and thrive.

Your new business is your baby.. your personal project that you can sculpt and nurture in the way you want, and it can be very successful as long as consumers like what you have to offer.

Build a strong plan before spending any money on your business. Start with market research, including defining your target market (TM) and scoping out your potential competitors. Then, write down your long-term and short-term goals and needs, followed by the step-by-step actions you will take to reach your goals.

We can help with a custom Business Coaching program to take you from start-up to success in just 12 weeks, 


This is the part of business plan implementation you do before you open the virtual or physical doors of your business.

You may want to get sales training, a website and set-up on social media.
