To the Editor:

There is a special opportunity for Franklin businesses being offered at the Franklin Business Incubator. A series of sessions on the international training program “Growth Wheel” is currently being offered once a month for two hours with different topics each session.

“Growth Wheel” teaches valuable lessons on business concepts, organization, operations and customer relations.

“Growth Wheel” is being taught by Jim Carroll, director of the Hampton Roads Small Business Development Council. Jim has vast experience in helping small businesses and is a certified trainer for “Growth Wheel.”

I signed up for the classes to garner more information to help me in my role as mentor for the Franklin Business Incubator clients. Having attended the first session and reviewed the information, I am convinced that business owners who are already successful can find ideas to help get to another level. Those businesses just starting out can get excellent ideas to help shape the structure of their business as well.

“Growth Wheel” offers much valuable information worth much more than the small tuition. Please contact the Franklin Business Incubator for more information. Also, more information about the program can be found at
