BBC Friday 21 April 2017 – Business Tools Sharing w/ Wynne Jacobson

This BBC Friday, we’ll start off with BBC Regular Wynne Jacobson, owner Eagle Harbor Editing, who will introduce and share about the StrengthsFinder program. (Wynne on LinkedIn.) Gallup Strengths Center gallupstrengthscenter.com.

Note: Wynne is neither associated with the Gallup Organization nor does she receive any monetary compensation for informing people about StrengthsFinder. (Though I think they should send her a nice thank you gift for sharing her story about StrengthsFinder or maybe hire her for some great proofing work! But that’s just my opinion, as chair of and writer for Bainbridge Business Connection. Brava, Wynne!)

OK, back on topic. There will be plenty of time for Q&A and discussion. Afterwards, as time permits, there should also be opportunity for a few others to share a business tool or app that has been helpful to them, or maybe just share some business wisdom learned along life’s way.

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me scurvy maties, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!
