Understanding Business

by Ron Kurtus (updated 22 January 2022)

A business is a legally recognized enterprise or organized activity that obtains, creates or manufactures products or services and then sells them to customers on a continuing basis.

Running a business requires leadership and includes management of finances, personnel, procurement, manufacturing, marketing and sales. This is true for a large corporation, as well as a one-person operation.

Whether you are an entrepreneur, business owner or manager, you need to know how to run your organization effectively to expand or grow the business.

My name is Ron Kurtus, and I want to help you start at improving your business skills, such that you are able to operate your business in a way that you will have greater profits, reduced costs, and a competitive advantage.
