Solano-Napa SBDC offers new ‘Biz Rx’ program

Caring for your business’s health is as important as caring for your personal health. Register today for the Solano-Napa SBDC’s new ‘Biz Rx’ program and receive a custom prescription for your business’s future success.

‘Biz Rx’ includes two key components. The first is a no-cost webinar series, led by Solano-Napa SBDC‘s Lead Business Advisor Onna Young. The second is a no-cost, confidential one-on-one assessment with an SBDC advisor that will includes an in-depth S.W.O.T. – Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats – analysis of the participant’s business. Business owners can register for both at

Solano-Napa SBDC Director Tim Murrill designed ‘Biz Rx’ in response to the many conversations he has had with area business owners navigating through a tumultuous 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic, and state ordered shutdowns.

“We know this year has been challenging for our small businesses,” he said. “People are concerned for the health and future of their businesses moving into 2021. Many would like to pivot their business or are looking for new opportunities, but do not know where to start.

“Look at ‘Biz Rx’ as a check-up or re-charge for your business and future opportunities,” he added. “Each assessment will be personalized and geared specifically to you and your business and will reveal key areas of opportunities. We want our business owners to get as much value from this experience as they possibly can.”

The free monthly webinar series, ‘Biz Rx: Diagnosing Marketing and Revenue Improvement Opportunities,’ includes a guided assessment of your business’s marketing and sales strategy.

“We’ll ask you a series of easy to answer questions that are designed to provide insights about where to head next with your marketing and sales strategy,” Young said. “There’s no pre-preparation needed to gain the clarity you seek. Whether you feel clear or confused, we are here to help shine a light on what’s missing and on where to head next.”

Attending the webinar is not a requirement for the assessment. The assessment is available and free to all business owners.
