SEATTLE — Dec. 5, 2023 — Business Development Resources (BDR), the training and business coaching authority for home services industry professionals, introduces its Emerging Business Academy, a streamlined version of its flagship coaching program tailored to the unique needs of growing small businesses.  

BDR’s Emerging Business Academy, designed for businesses with four people or fewer, guides motivated owners to put specific foundational systems and processes into place to reach revenues of $1 million and beyond.  

“With our Emerging Business Academy, the goal is to introduce small business owners to the process of structuring their business to grow and be successful long-term,” said Kim Archer, President of BDR. “For over 20 years, our Profit Coach program has provided insights to help owners shift from a tactical role to a strategic one.

As the sessions progress, participants discover BDR’s core best practices and work with their coach to construct a business plan supporting increased profitability and growth to scale.
