BBC Friday 25 November – Off For Thanksgiving Holiday

No BBC This Friday 25 November 2016
Stay Warm – Be Thankful – Keep Smiling

ABermann HomepageAnd recall what we learned last year at this time from OfficeXpats Ambassador emeritus and food specialist Anita Bermann: Mindful-eating means food without fear, dining without guilt, eating without remorse. Mindful eating is a learned skill that can help you create a better relationship to your food. (Don’t you want to relate well to your food?

The art of mindful eating is the opposite of the multi-tasking meal, where like a post-modern digital teen one eats talks texts watches youtube and gives the amazing impression of being fully aware of a wonderful shared meal together with family friends and whoever else you invite in off the street, that homeless vet, that lonely senior citizen, the dog or cat that needs a good home. (Thank you Anita Bermann [idealfeastnutrition.com] for sharing with us your mindful-eating insights and wisdom.) Think about it. BBC: We Don’t Exist, But We Do Think About It A Lot.

So, A Happy Thanksgiving To All! Thank you to BBC Regulars everywhere for your support, sharing your business wisdom, and having fun. To all you BBC Bikers, ride safe – and to everyone be safe this holiday of friendship, family, and thankfulness. Love your neighbor as your dog loves you. Shop local. Meow.

Sincerely,
thumb_0051The BBC Management, KaveDragen Ink, & other entrepreneurial sentients from planet BBC

BBC Friday 18 November 2016 – “Do Not Contact Compliance” w/ Jordan Levine

jordan_levineJoin us this dark November BBC Friday for “The ABCs Of DNC: Navigating the alphabet of Do Not Contact compliance,” with BBC Regular and mysterious DNC host Jordan Levine. 

Eeeeeek! DNC, FTC, FCC, TSR, TCPA, EBR, ATDS, and state AGs! [Not even the BBC @ OXp can boast that many 3-letter thingies!] So, what are all of these letters? And why can they spell ruin for companies trying to market their products and services? Are you making outbound phone calls, sending texts? (The fines can be crippling….) Are you in compliance with “do not contact” regulations? Come to BBC to find out.

jordan_logoDon’t Panic! Learn about: The regulatory environment and possible fines. “Do Not Solicit” lists and “The National Do Not Call Registry,” as well as state registries and corporate “Do Not Call” lists. Calling/texting wireless phones. The “Established Business Relationship” exception. Obtaining Proper Consent. Informational Calls vs. Sales Calls. Safe Harbor. Time Of Day Calling Restrictions. Caller ID Requirements. Vicarious Liability: e.g. buying “pre-scrubbed” lead lists or using call centers. (Jordan’s contact info: jordan@strofina.com / 206-855-9681.)

strofina-logo-bigJordan Levine, Customer Engagement Compliance Professional (CECP), is the founder and President of Strofina, Inc., which provides “do not contact” compliance services to help organizations avoid fines and worry.

So, be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me scurvy seadogs, 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!

No BBC This Friday, 11 Nov. 2016, For Veterans Day

4thOfJulyDogBBC is Canceled this Friday in honor of American Veterans. 

Veterans Day, harks back to its origins on “Armistice Day,” 11 November 1918, 98 years ago. The official US spelling of the day is “Veterans Day” (no possessive), in that the day is about Americans honoring American Vets, on this one day a year, and thus it is a day for all Americans. “Ruff!”

Be safe. Be kind. Do good.

Sincerely,
BBC Management, KaveDragen Ink, & other entrepreneurial sentients from planet BBC
