About this event

Business is an Art

Bet you are asking yourself: How is business an art? Well, Mark Greathouse is looking forward to answering this intriguing question on September 25th. Seeing your business as an art can contribute to its growth. Going to work every day can be fun and exciting!

So here is the answer! 

Mark's journey and experience to defining business as an art.

 AUTHOR: Currently full-time promoting his newly published western series Tumble Weed Sagas and writing additional books to the series as well as historical novels. 


FORMAT CHANGE: We are creating an interactive Fireside Chat Environment. Therefore, instead of waiting to the end of the Fireside Chat for questions and answers, we will do so after a couple of subject matters are discussed.

The following are some of the subjects Mark will be discussing with us:

 How can business be an art?

 Establishing and maintaining passion in an entrepreneurial business.

 Evaluating cost and value in your product(s)/service(s).

 How to create lasting value.

 Pricing……what is the market willing to pay for your product(s)/service(s)?

 Conveying passion to others….inside and outside your business.

 The realities of being a small businesses.

Mark is known for “telling it like it is.” That will not be a problem on Sept. 25th.
