Best Business Practices is a previous course offered by NRWA. Some individuals hold a badge for completing the course, so the details below provide an overview of the content. This class is not being offered in 2022; however, it has come back in an altered version as the NRWA Business Growth Lab.

Description of Best Business Practices Course:

Embarking on the entrepreneurial journey or growing an existing business can be overwhelming, even for the most skilled and passionate resume writers. The road to success is less challenging and more rewarding when you have the right tools and a plan to equip yourself for the road ahead. The NRWA Best Business Practices Course is a 6-week course designed to provide resume writers and other professionals in the careers industry with the knowledge, tools, and insight necessary to succeed and prosper as a small business owner.

As the only nonprofit dedicated to supporting resume writers and career professionals, the NRWA is delighted to offer this powerful and interactive program to help you unlock the secrets of building a profitable business. We heard our members call for more business tools and restructured this course to include more best practices.

The first best practice you will learn is how to set aside time to work “on” your business instead of working “in” your business without having clearly defined goals. Whether you are building a new business or looking to grow an existing one, this course will help you create a strategic path for your business and reap the rewards of improved client interactions, sales, and growth.

Embrace your future as a successful business owner by registering for the NRWA Best Business Practices Course today and discover how to make current and future decisions to build a sustainable income through your resume writing business. Learn best business practices and develop YOUR unique business plan and strategies to bolster operations, marketing, and sales.
