Dr. Deborah Osgood of the Knowledge Institute for Small Business Development is a wealth of knowledge for business professionals. She is the creator and chief architect of numerous innovative learning systems. We learned how our relationship with money as an adult regarding personal and business finance is created by what we heard about money when we were very young. This old “model” can keep us from reaching our goals and make us feel stuck.
In order to not feel stuck in habits and perspectives that directly affect our ability to achieve our personal and business financial goals for growth, there is an effective process that clears the path. Dr. Osgood took us through a logical thought process and exercises to apply her concepts.
We never seem to have time to develop goals and the plan to achieve them, but we spend a lot of time worrying and stewing over decisions. Is time going so fast it’s working against you? Spending time differently by using these free tools and accessing experts in business for consultation through her website will redirect and create a new dialogue with ourselves about money. In our interactive session, we had several “AHAs” that made us aware of how we were getting in our own way. It was experiential and we received tangible tools to help us focus in a straightforward, uncomplicated way.
Give your business the “gift” of planning. It will help you make better decisions about your time, your tasks and activities, and knowing if you are heading in the right direction.
Leverage the expertise and tools provided by Dr. Osgood. If you didn’t make it to the session, then check out her website www.bdki.com. Also, consider networking with someone that attended the session and coach each other.
Thank you Dr. Osgood and Molly O’Donnell, Marketing Assistant, for your generous advice.

Learn, earn and keep more of what you make in business with increased insight into your money blueprint, the numbers and goal setting.
Did you know that the number of wealthy women in the U.S. is growing twice as fast as the number of wealthy men? In fact, 45% of American millionaires are women and 60% of high-net-worth women have earned their own fortunes. Some estimate that by 2030, women will control as much as two-thirds of the nation’s wealth.
Are you looking for a piece of the action?
In this provocative and interactive workshop, participants will examine what they truly want from their business and their life. Small business is personal. Examining both business and quality of life objectives, and demystifying the numbers game provides a transformative foundation for increasing sales and profitability. In the new millennium, women can and are having it all.
